I have been seeking a position to start my career. I have had very little success with landing a full-time position in the sports industry. I knew what I was getting myself into when I decided to follow my passion. Now I must trust in God to pull me toward the finish line. Anyone who starts out in sports know that the pay grade is lower until you work your way to a management position.
Getting your foot in the door is the most challenging part. If you don’t know someone who has a position open or the internship you worked with doesn’t have an opening you are pretty much at the bottom of the barrel. I’ve had four relevant internships, a bachelors, and a masters and still told I do not have enough experience. I really do not understand.
I had a wake up call long time ago with the realization that I have to be aggressive for what I want in my career plan. I am so close and looking forward to whatever comes my way.
I said it before…
