Hey everybody, I’m Brian Clapp VP of Content and Engaged Learning at and this is the Work in Sports podcast. This week, we've got a question from a curious high school senior named Jeremy who is passionate about getting into the sports industry. He writes:

“Hi Brian, I am entering my senior year of High School, I play soccer and baseball at the varsity level, but  not quite good enough to play in college. Nonetheless, I’ve figured out that I really want to work in sports and you are the expert on that, so here I am with a question!
This year we’ll be practicing mock job and college application interviews. One thing I’ve learned about myself is that I am terrible in these situations. I know interviews and professional conversations are really important, can you help give me some tips to do better and improve?”  


Keep playing to get the in depth details, but here are a few tidbits

  • Build your emotional intelligence
  • Give yourself a few key messages you want to get across
