How do I get a job in sports?

To get a job in sports, figure out which sport or field you’re passionate about, get an internship in that sport or field as soon as you can – and if you can’t find one start volunteering with a local sports team; meet as many people in that sport or field as possible; and get a college degree in a related field (it does not necessarily need to be a sports management, sports business, or exercise sciences degree). Also, keep watching the sport – it’s important to be a student of your game! Then, make sure your job application materials are as strong as possible (have 3 trusted advisors give you feedback on them), apply to any jobs that seem related to where you eventually want to end up with tailored materials, and do your best every day once hired.

Or you can become a professional athlete by selecting a sport to focus on; training both mentally and physically; being a standout on your high school team and putting up impressive numbers to earn press and impress scouts that come to see your program; getting recruited to play in college, putting up impressive numbers, and so on.

But don’t forget, you can get a job in sports that doesn’t involve playing the sport such as: coach, trainer, manager, agent, journalism, videographer, photographer, marketing, design, operations, human resources – essentially any field but working for a sports company such as ESPN, Overtime, NWSL or a sports team.

How can I work in sports without a degree?

To work in sports without a degree you’ll need to earn lots of experience in your chosen field. There are tons of jobs you can get without a degree including: trainer, referee, photographer, videographer, facilities maintenance, audio, blogger, designer, travel coordinator. To work in sports without a degree, start by finding internships or volunteer work, or by trying to build your own thing. Don’t be afraid to reach out to all your favorite teams or athletes and ask if you can help them in any way. You can do anything if you put your mind to it and keep at it.

What are good starter sports jobs?

Good starter sports jobs are: social media coordinator, production assistant, public relations assistant, design assistant. Basically anything that helps you meet a lot of people to build connections with, while educating you about the industry and how to do great work, is a good starter sports job. Be sure to pay attention to who your manager will be, as often they have a big impact on an employee’s overall happiness in a role.
