Internships are a good way to break into the sports business.

Many people dream of working in sports in some capacity. Some might want to be athletes, while others prefer coaching or the administration side of things. Other people might enjoy working in media roles. No matter what your goals might be, there is a way for you to break into the profession of sports. You can find an internship that will help you build valuable skills, and make connections that will help you find your future job. Make sure you know how to be your own best coach when it comes to getting the career you’ve always dreamed of.

Make Yourself Stand Out
In order to get selected for a sports internship, you must make sure to stand out in some way. If you’re at a college, you will need to showcase your skills, desires, and school spirit. Show the people hiring for the internship that you offer a unique skill set they won’t be able to find with other candidates. Be sure to sound professional yet enthusiastic on the phone, and in person for interviews.

Hit the Ground Running
Now that you have the opportunity at your sports internship, you must seize the day. Go above and beyond the expectations of the position. Do extra work you haven’t been asked to do. You will impress your boss, and leave a lasting memory with them. They will either hire you, or recommend you to someone else without hesitation. You should truly treat an internship like a real career, since it is how you will get the most out of it.
