Career of the Week- Sport Journalist

| No Comments

"The media can create heroes and heroines, restructure the rules of the game, expose corruption or elevate an athlete, a team or an institution to become an American tradition."
The power of selection in coverage and interpretation of the event rests with sports journalists and media organizations.

Sports journalism is power, responsibility, fast-paced, demanding -- a lot of hard work. It's also great fun! The benefits include box seats at the games, meeting sports stars, getting to know the people who manage the major league teams or train the Olympic athletes - travel, fame, and hearing words of appreciation from your own fans. As for the pay, it varies as wildly as possible among all the career tracks, jobs and places in which sports journalists can find themselves. Magazine sports journalists generally earn higher salaries, and Internet and broadcast sports journalists can do very well.

Pursue a career in print sports journalism or be a part of the media sector. With a graduate degree under your belt and a few years of experience, you will be in a position to join the ranks of national sports journalists.

Business Marketing Education B.S

As the Emerging Markets Intern, what are some of your key responsibilities you have been charged with?

"I develop the monthly newsletter consisting of all the events that our department is involved with. That said, I also have the challenge of creating a majority of the events: finding sponsors, setting meetings and implementing tasks."

What have you learned this far from your internship experience that you have found to be the most valuable?

"I have learned that going the extra mile makes a significant difference from a good intern to a great intern. For example, taking initiative to tasks, coming to work early and staying late can show managers and decision makers that you are committed to your job. Internships can also be a great way to show employers how well you can work under pressure. Seek opportunities within your organization and ask questions of your supervisor."

Career of the Week- Event Coordinator

| No Comments

Event planning is a relatively new career field. This career deals with a lot of communication and organization aspects. There are many different names for an event planner such as a conference coordinator, a convention planner, a special event coordinator, and a meeting manager. Event planning is the process of planning a festival, ceremony, competition, party, or convention. Event planning includes budgeting, establishing dates and alternate dates, selecting and reserving the event site, acquiring permits, and coordinating transportation and parking.

Employment of meeting and convention planners is expected to grow 16 percent over the 2008-18 decade, which is faster than the average for all occupations. As businesses and organizations become increasingly international, meetings and conventions become even more important. According to Bureau of Labor Statistics, median annual wages of meeting and convention planners in May 2008 were $44,260. The middle 50 percent earned between $34,480 and $57,820.

Most organizations require entry level event coordinators to have a bachelor's degree, preferably in marketing, public relations, hospitality management, business or communications. Event coordinators must be detail-oriented and very organized, to manage the many details of an event. Written and verbal communication skills are important.
