I hope this class can assist me in finding a job with a college football team once I graduate. I have always loved the game and along with my high school coaching experience, I hope this class can teach me how to land a gig in college football. I believe this class will be very helpful in giving me some of the skills I will need to find a career in the sports world. I hope to find a job as an offensive or defensive intern once I graduate. First, the readings and lectures will provide important material as it pertains to the job of administrators. Interestingly, coaches also perform administrative duties and have a ton of responsibility off the field as well as on it. By having an experienced professor and a helpful textbook, I feel I have an opportunity to take advantage of the lessons that can be learned. Secondly, and perhaps more importantly, some of our assignments consist of making contacts within the industry we hope to find employment in. Of course it is not just what, but also who you know that can help you advance in any industry. Assignments that allow us to make contacts within the industry as well as get a taste of what it is like to be a coach, administrator, etc. will be extremely helpful. Students like myself will be able to make valuable contacts and gain valuable experience in job hunting, interviewing and I hope I can really get a feel for what it would be like to be a college football coach.
Time to find a job...
