Great question. As a recent Marketing and Sports Management grad, it is important to find resources in the sports community and reach out to individuals on LinkedIn in careers you might be interested in. Experience is the greatest teacher, so be sure to reach out to teams or your athletic department to check-in on internship or shadowing opportunities.
In terms of resources, there is a sports journalism group that was started by a few students at Oregon called The Collaborative that can be found on Instagram at @xcollaborative_ and you can hop on calls with some of the leaders in the industry.
Best of luck!
