So I've been doing some thinking recently and I've decided that rather than take the safe route of a CPA, I want to pursue my love of basketball and have a career in sports management once I'm out of school. Could either be the HR/sales/marketing side of sports, or more preferably the scout/front office/gm/athletic director side of sports. As a current student, I know Eller is my current path with some major (accounting or mis or management are my interests) and a sports management certificate. I would also love to find a job or internship with Arizona Athletics - being a student manager/assistant/whatever theyre called for the basketball team is an absolute dream I would love to somehow make happen.
So anyone on PGU attempt to pursue this path, finding their way working in the sports business? Anyone have any tips for me? Know of any good places in Tucson to look for experience or any ways to get involved with Arizona Athletics? Or most helpfully, anyone have any sort of connections in the Tucson area (or LA area for when I'm home in the summer)? I'm hoping someone here can give me some help before I go to the desperate option of tweeting GB "have any job openings for current students in az athletics?" haha.
