Only with time will you be able to figure out what career path you will choose when you enter the sports industry (especially in your last two years of college). You must try different roles and sacrifice many hours of your time to get ahead. I have done everything from teaching, coaching, training, therapy, events, managing facilities and staff, etc. The educational background you choose is just as important. I chose a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology - Exercise Science for my first degree and an Master of Business Administration in Sports and Recreation Management for my second degree.
Networking is another top priority! You are more likely to land a position with a team or venue when someone you know has the ability to bring you on. Volunteer. Intern. Work part-time with a team. Learn as much as you can. Be good to people. Work hard. Have fun in the process!
