What Should an Ideal Sports Anchor Resume Look Like 0

Posted on August 13, 2020 by Aditya Sharma

During the Covid-19 pandemic, one of the things that the people missed the most was sports. As sporting events are slowly starting to take place, for preventive measures spectators aren’t allowed. 

Even before this pandemic, the public received information related to the developments in the sports world through sports anchors, reporters, writers, etc proving that sports anchors play a very important role in any sporting event. 

So, recruiters want to hire the best talent, and to make sure that they are impressed with your application, you need to understand what your sports resume should look like. 

Let’s dig in. 

An optimized header

The header of a resume sets the foundation in terms of what it will entail. Formatting it correctly with only relevant information can do wonders for your profile. 

That is why it should be divided into 3 categories:

  • Name & Contact: You need to write your name just once in the header along with relevant contact information such as residence location, phone number, and email address. 
  • Relevant Links: Include the links to LinkedIn, sports blog, portfolio, etc. The idea is to add links to outbound links that can be valuable to your profile. 
  • Resume title: The title of your resume should be in line with your current or last job. For example, Sports Reporter, Sports Anchor, etc.

Posted on June 15, 2020 by John Harris

The Coronavirus pandemic has left us all in shock. As much as it has caused harm to the lives of thousands of people, it hasn’t done any less damage to various sectors of our economy. The entertainment sector, especially the sports world, is facing a massive set back because of the infamous horrors of COVID-19. If we talk about Football mainly, the loss is immeasurable. It might be hard to digest, but Football stadiums will have a whole new look after the pandemic settles down. What’s worse is that changes are inevitable, mainly this one. While we don’t know what is exactly going to change in football stadiums, here are a few presumptions.

Empty for a few months 

It is well known to everyone that the current situation around us doesn’t permit traveling for our own sake. Stepping out of the house these days is nothing short of a challenge. We barely go out to buy essential commodities. Now, if we talk about football stadiums, it is pretty much evident that they are going to be empty for quite a while now, given the pandemic. Even after it is over, which doesn’t seem to be happening any sooner, people will shy away from going out to watch matches. Large gatherings of people are not allowed, anyway. So, fans will have to make do with viewing live matches on television until we are given further notice.

Could You Make a Living Coaching Sports? 0

Posted on December 30, 2019 by John Harris

Coaching is one of those roles that a lot of people know exist, but they don’t really understand the importance of it. All of the big sporting heroes, regardless of their sport, have always had people in the back cheering them on, fighting their corner and giving them the motivation they need to push through and become one of the best. Coaches are the unsung heroes in a famous sportsman’s career, but it’s starting to grow more popular for many reasons.

One such reason is the opportunity it gives to make a living. Coaches typically don’t earn as much as the people they coach (especially if we’re talking big names and international sports) but they do have an easy time finding work because of the skills they offer. So in this post, we’re going to talk about what coaching involves, several ways to do it, and what you can expect from a career choice like this.

Secrets of Writing a Good Sports Management Research Proposal 1

Posted on June 19, 2019 by Alex Buffet
Sports Management and Coaching Science as a Career

The better your research proposal is, the more chances your application has. Sports management sounds like an engaging topic, but at the same time, it is not that easy to write a quality research proposal on it, as, strictly speaking, it is not a theme with an extensive academic background. You should be very careful when it comes to writing proposals, as the material you collect doing it, will come in handy when you write an actual research paper or dissertation. Often, the research paper is a background for your future dissertation, and coming up with a good research proposal, based on quality rationally, with quality described methodology is a key to success for years to come. We asked some experts from research proposal writing service WriteMyPaperHub to share some helpful tips with students.

Clear and Precise Title

There is not much room for creativity here, but still, you should remember that the title should be engaging enough. Your professor or thesis committee are obligated to read your sports management research proposal, but again they will see if you don’t care about the title. Come up with the name of your research proposal, thinking about the broader audience. At the same time, make it very clear and rather simple, so a reader can tell what your key idea is just reading your title, not digging too deeply.

Tips for Turning Your Love of Sport Into a Career 0

Posted on November 05, 2018 by Jason Smith

sports as career-1Millions of people around the world are passionate about sports and play them and/or watch them on a daily or weekly basis. If you’re one of them, you no doubt have favorite teams you cheer for passionately, spend much of your leisure time being active in your sports support and wish that you could somehow make a living on this interest.

Well, the fact is that you probably can. There are all sorts of sports-related jobs on offer, most of which don’t actually require you to be fit enough or young enough to play professionally. Thanks to technology, you can also work for a company that may be located thousands of miles away, so you don’t even need to find an employer in your local area.

If you’re keen to pursue a new, sports-related career, read on for some tips you can follow to help you make your dreams come true.

Learn About the Different Job Options

For starters, it’s important to do your research, so you know about all the different job options available. While at first you might think that you can’t work in the sporting arena because nothing matches your skill set, when you find out how many different fields there are, you’re sure to find something to suit.

For example, you can help athletes to stay in top shape by becoming a physical or occupational therapist, a masseuse, acupuncturist or other type of therapist. Jobs can be in private practice or working full-time for a particular sporting team or organization. If, instead, you want to help sports people focus on their mental preparation or deal with the stress of their career, consider becoming a specialist sports psychologist.

If you’re good with numbers you could become a statistician, examining sports analytics for a living (a growing field) or if you enjoy negotiating contracts and deals and building relationships, then becoming a sports agent or manager could be the right fit for you. Read the rest of this entry →

  • Vintage Athlete of the Month

    • Drew Pearson: Mr. Clutch
      August 7, 2021 | 6:59 pm

      Drew Pearson

      The Sports Then and Now Vintage Athlete of the Month is a former NFL wide receiver know as “Mr. Clutch” for his penchant for making big receptions at crucial moments of the game. After waiting for more than 30 years, he is finally earning his rightful place in the Pro Football Hall of Fame as a member of the 2021 Hall of Fame Class.

      During his decade with the Dallas Cowboys, Drew Pearson had a habit of making the big catch at the right moment to help the Cowboys time and again snatch victory from the jaws of defeat.

      The favorite target of Hall of Fame quarterback Roger Staubach, Pearson was widely recognized as one of the great receivers of his era. Though at the time of his retirement many expected Pearson to easily breeze into the Hall of Fame, his enshrinement was derailed by changes to the game which artificially inflated receiver stats and made the numbers he produced during a time when wide receivers weren’t catching 100 passes a season seem inferior.
