What do you love about sports entertainment?
It is important for everyone to love what they they, especially if they plan on continuing on in their career for many years. This also leads to a happy life! I would like to see why others enjoy this industry to widen my views. #sports #sports-management #entertainment #social-media #broadcast-media #sports-journalism #sports-media #sports-broadcasting
I completely agree with Caleb -- the people you work with make your job enjoyable. But you also need to enjoy what you daily job tasks. I do have some friends who enjoy the travel aspect of working in the sports industry as well.
Caleb Reid’s Answer
Alana- I love this question! I think what I honestly love most about the sport entertainment industry isn't just the sport part itself. What makes it for me is the people I have the opportunity to work and collaborate with. When you work with people who are invested in what they do from a sport and carer perspective, it makes what you do a lot more fun! I used to want to work in sports because I simply loved sports. Then once I got my foot in the door and gained some work experience, I realized I truly love what I do because of the people.
I also enjoy this industry from a technological perspective. We can deliver more of the sports stories and games with more bells and whistles than ever and every year brings more.
Where else can you do a job that revolves around multiple sports/games every day without playing the games themselves? There is an energy that is hard to describe, you just need to experience it.
