As we move into 2013, many of us are looking for work or for new employment opportunities. This time of year leaves brings feelings of renewed energy and motivation to better our lives and increase the heat in job searching and other pursuits. That being said, I thought it would be a good time to pass on a few things I have learned from my own job search thus far.
Job search websites have become the number one way in which new jobs are listed. Navigating these websites can be exhausting and tricky, but there are numerous databases specifically aimed at helping those looking for jobs in sports that are very easy to use. One website I’ve found particularly useful is workinsports.com. Creating an account on the website is free. After selecting your desired sector of the sports industry (I chose Sports Management/Operations/Analyst) you can receive emails when jobs are posted in your field at your desired frequency. I find this feature extremely convenient.
This is just one example of a useful job search website relative to finding a job or career in the sports industry. Other useful databases for sports jobs include athletestobusiness.com, jobsinsports.com, and teamworkonline.com. I’d recommend checking out all of the listed website to see as many job openings as possible.
When it comes to finding job openings in sports, USE YOUR RESOURCES. Hopefully these sites will help, but make sure to have a good cover letter and résumé ready to send to these teams. You can’t get a job in sports until you start submitting those applications! Good luck, and until next time, take care!
