sports industry TreK
Join us for our Sports Industry Trek! Our New York City day trip will be led by our HireEdge Guide Laura Fortner.
Our first stop will be marketing agency CSM LeadDog to learn about the services they provide and look at the sports-related client work they have done for NASCAR and the WWE. We’ll also hear about the company overall, including different roles within the organization and how careers are launched through their internship program.
Next we’ll walk uptown a few blocks to visit digital sports leader Bleacher Report (aka “B/R”), where we will join a panel discussion including executives from Sales/Marketing, B/R Social Media, B/R Content, and the popular Instagram channel House of Highlights over our brown bag lunch. We’ll also get to tour the B/R onsite production facilities where they shoot and edit video series.
Our last stop will be a short stroll away to the executive offices of Major League Lacrosse team, the New York Lizards. Here we'll meet the CEO to hear more about the NY Lizards organization, their lines of business and ways they engage their fans. He'll also share more about the different functions and career paths with the team including ways students might first get involved through internships and entry level positions.
