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.
