Breaking Into Sports in Nashville

Now here’s a great idea:

Is your dream to work in the Sports & Entertainment Industry?
Well, you are not alone and it is never too early to start gaining the skills and information you need to get a head start.
All high school and college level students are invited to join the Nashville Predators “Breaking Into Sports” Workshop. This one-of-a-kind event will take place on Saturday, November 1st from 2:30 ‚Äì 6:00 p.m. and will be followed by watching the Predators take on the Florida Panthers at 7:00 p.m.
During this special event, you will have the opportunity to hear from a panel of industry professionals and learn the paths they took to get to their current positions. Some of the special guests include:
• Ed Lang, President, Nashville Predators
• Todd Turner, former Director of Athletics, Univ. of Washington, Vanderbilt Univ., North Carolina State Univ. and Univ. of Connecticut
• Michael Santos, Dir. of Hockey Operations, Nashville Predators
• Brock Jones, Dir. of Booking, Sommet Center
• Dan Rossetti, President, Ascension Sports Partners, LLC
The day doesn’t stop there as you will also have a chance to speak with representatives from sports teams, media outlets, and colleges and universities from around Georgia, Tennessee and Kentucky. You will be able to learn about everything from Sport Management Programs to openings within their team’s front offices. If you see a career in sports in your future, this is an event you won’t want to miss!

These kids don’t know how good they’ve got it. Every team should do something like this; it’s good way to get your future workforce engaged and thinking ahead. And hey, if nothing else, they get to see a game. Win-win for everyone!

    Does this mean that most (if not all of us) are signed up to receive updates from hockeyjobs.nhl.com? 🙂

  2. I think that is definitely the case. Why not keep your options open? 😉

    Options?.. Ha! 🙂

  4. Predators management has been surprisingly adept at engaging the fans. Folks around the league just don’t seem to understand how many people in Nashville are really behind the team.

    Me personally, I’ve always wanted to know how one goes about being StatBoy for their favorite team. I’d LOVE the Capitals to do something similar, I would join their staff in a heartbeat (If… The Price Is Right) 😉
    I’m sure the ticket brokers are on the lower end of the pay scale and Sales is definitely not my bag anyways. I believe the Caps outsource their webdev work so that could evaporate at the next contract negotiation which would kinda suck since I like who I work for now.
    Nice find, Deportes Chica!

    THIS JUST IN
    Milan Jurcina has just been seen exiting “Manpower” in Arlington, VA.

    Dan Rossetti, on the panel, is a sports recruiter I’ve worked with. Good guy and good contact to have for those who want to work in sports (i.e. not make much money). 🙂

    I wish the Caps would do something like this. I’m sure my professors would understand me skipping class for it.

    Georgetown did something similar earlier this week to plug its new sports management masters program.
