Help Wanted: From graduation to gainful employment


Getting your name – and your work – out there by ayhosier

I am still looking for that foot in the door opportunity, however, in the meantime I am shaking hands and meeting new people. People in the business are willing to help. I can’t thank people enough for their advice on signing contracts, applying for jobs and anything else that is helpful to getting a job in Sports Broadcasting.

It is extremely important to get your name, face and personality out there and see what happens. You never know who might like you enough to give you an interview. I am still looking for that job in sports, but I have been told that patience is the key.

I continue to use CareerScribe.com, LinkedIn.com, Twitter, Facebook and anything else to network. CareerScribe and LinkedIn are professional networks that allow people to see polished information about yourself. On CareerScribe I am able to post recent stories that I have done and send that out to potential employers. It is a constant timeline of new things I am working on. Also, on LinkedIn I am able to make connections with people and build a network. I use Twitter and Facebook to post any recent stories I have done with Palestra.net. I am hoping that a lot of people see these stories and maybe someone will notice my work. Having a job by the time I graduate in two weeks doesn’t seem realistic, but I’d like to think that I’m ahead of the game.
