We have begun our 2009-2010 Blogging and welcome your comments!
The first contribution comes recent Ohio University Sport Management grad Ian Davie. I asked Ian to share his thoughts and tips for students as the new school year begins. I know students can hear it from their professors a million times, but sometimes it takes hearing it from someone in their shoes for it to sink in. Ian has certainly paid his dues in the sport industry since graduation. His life path since June 2008 includes:
-Staying in Athens, OH for 2 months to work with the Southern Ohio Copperheads (summer baseball league team)
– Living in Baltimore for 3 months and completing a PGA TOUR Internship with the Constellation Energy Senior Players Championship
-Living in Bonita Springs, FL for 7 months looking for a job
-FINALLY, landing a great job with the Phoenix Suns as a Sales Consultant for past 3 months.
Getting a job is tough right now. You have to put yourself in the best position to succeed in a time when the job market is tough. Currently, my goal is to make 100 outbound phone calls a day. The point being; I talk to a lot of people and learn that many of them are unemployed right now.
