Hi everybody, I’m Brian Clapp Director of Content for WorkinSports.com and this is the Work in Sports podcast…
Happy Monday everyone – big week this week.
First off tonight I am interviewing Amie Wells, Broadcast Coordinator for the Tennessee Titans. I’m excited about this for a few reasons – she is just 4 years into her career, all with the Titans, so I think she’ll provide great insight into getting started in sports and the efforts she took to get noticed and hired.
Also, on Wednesday she’s headed to the NFL draft to work for the Titans coverage – which is very exciting and timely.
I’m going to turn around the interview quickly and publish on Wednesday – and move Deandra Duggans from the Baltimore Ravens back a week. Deandra was awesome, but you’ll have to wait, I want to hit on the draft stuff right now.
Next – tomorrow am also speaking to class at the University of Florida , so if we have any Gators listening hopefully I’ll meet some of you virtually tomorrow!
Alright , now that we have that out of the way … let’s get to today's big question comes from Ramon Sanchez A student in the University of San Francisco sports management program.
First of all, I just want to say thank you for developing this podcast. As a current Sport Management student, this podcast has been spot on and I have learned so much! I just finished listening to the podcast where you interviewed Dan Rossetti and two questions popped into my head... 1. I recently had a job interview and unfortunately did not get the job. Usually, people just move on after the interview and never speak to each other again. Is it okay to keep in touch with the interviewer (he was the manager of operations) for future opportunities and as a networking opportunity? 2. I heard Dan and others you have interviewed talk about looking out of state to find a job in the sports industry. If I was single, there is no doubt I would keep this in mind, however, my girlfriend and I have been together for 4 years and she is a recent graduate and has started her career so it would be tough to consider moving somewhere else. I would like to stay local to prevent any relocation issues or something worse. What is your thought on this? Looking forward to reading your response, Ramon Sanchez
Ramon congrats to you and your girlfriend, you are a good man for thinking of her first. Trust me, this singular fact will get you far in life.
Let’s start with your first question on staying in touch with someone who has interviewed you.
