Hi Chioma,


It's great that you like to put your own spin on anything you do. Here's what I can say about any career: you will be competing for your job with other capable people. But none of those people can be exactly YOU. It's so important to let potential bosses know how you're different from everybody else.


I work as a writer, and when I am hired for a job, it's because 1) I have a proven track record of being a good employee and hard worker and 2) the person hiring likes the "voice" of my writing, i.e. my unique, personal approach and attitude to life and people. They could meet 100 people, and we might have the same experience and the same background, but none of those people has my Kendall brain so they won't think like I think, or write what I'll write, and vice versa.


But, while it's so important to be unique and add your spin, it's also important to know when to do that, and when to hold the spice. For instance, you might have the BEST sense of humor. But maybe you need to hold it in and be quiet during a company meeting, and save it the laughs for when you take a potential client out to dinner.


I hope that helps!


Kendall

Sarah’s Answer

Hello! Thanks for the question. For the Sports and Entertainment industry specifically, I would say that the landscape is continually evolving, and that there is certainly room for creativity and innovation. For example, if you worked for a sports league like MLB or NBA, you might find new ways to deliver value to your important sponsors. Let's say you have a automotive sponsor, how can things like game tickets or athlete appearances be packaged up that would be attractive to a company hoping to drive people to a car dealership? Sponsors are always looking for new ways to use the same sponsorship assets so creativity is very important.

Another route to take would be to work for a sports/entertainment agency. In this type of role you might serve multiple clients, all hoping to connect with their customers through their passions. Customers are savvy, and they are always looking for new experiences that surpass their expectations. Agency teams are constantly innovating to keep the offerings fresh and unique.

I hope this was helpful, and all the best to you.
