Preparation is everything in life. At WorkInSports, we approach finding a job in the sports industry through the lens of developing a specific strategy to give you the best chance of landing the job you are after. Even if you aren't a list person, chances are you have a plan in the back of your mind laying out how to achieve a goal.

A higher-level strategy actively or passively influences how you search for a job in the sports industry. Everything from the college courses you enroll in, the organizations you sign up for, and the internships you take fits into a strategy of building up the right set of skills, constructing a network of contacts, creating a resume that employers, and polishing your interviewing skills.

Our guest on the WorkInSports Podcast is the Florida Panthers' Sam Doerr, who serves as the team's Chief Strategy Officer. Doerr's role is to search for strategic revenue opportunities and evaluate whether they make sense for the organization to adopt. We talk about NIL, NFTs, esports and other market trends. Enjoy!
