Why working in the sports entertainment industry can be profitable and in other cases not?

I am a senior in high school and I have been doing research in what to do after high school. And I was wondering how do some people make a lot of profit while other are struggling and I don't know if I want to go into this career or not. #customer-experience

This is the perfect time for women to enter the sports reporting field. If you look at the trends in hiring, minorites and women have been increasingly desired figures in front of and behind the cameras. There is also a fledgling segment of the media seeking to increase responsible reporting, but as with news, the money is in sensationalism and tailoring content to what media outlets assume people want to watch. So you have to decide the type of Journalism ethics you want to follow.


At the very least, you have to have an online presence by the time you begin looking for a job. Employers in media want to see that you have taken the initiative over the course of months or years to incorporate social media in your personal life, so they can guage how you'll apply it to the standard practices of Journalism professionals. The modern journalist is also a one-person machine. Employers want you to know how to shoot good video, capture good stills, and report the good story in addition to your social media tasks.


It sounds like a lot, but once you get in the swing of it, it's simple. With as much security as a female prospect does have in this industry, it does not typically pay well. You have to be in the industry for years before the paycheck starts looking decent.


I recommend that you contact your local news affiliate and ask if you can shadow the newsroom. You will get a decent idea of how the day-to-day works on a smaller scale. As stated, it can appear much more overwhelming than it actually is.

First you need to understand what are their focus, their public, what are their differential, example personal trainers can make good money if they are specialized and have good connections...
Maybe location/region also is something to consider, places that are more sunny people invest more in sports activities..
So check those guys career and development and see what is missing for you and go for it
