Isenberg Professor on Career Planning in Sport Management
February 29, 2012
A talk at Isenberg to 250 students by Glenn Wong, a professor in the Mark H. McCormack Department of Sport Management and author of The Comprehensive Guide to Careers in Sports, emphasized the hyper-competitiveness of the sports management industry and the importance of early and sustained career planning, including networking and internships. In his remarks, covered extensively in The Massachusetts Daily Collegian, Wong observed, "The things I spoke about tonight can't be done overnight. In terms of planning academic schedules and getting various experiences, applying for internships and jobs, it takes some real time. And the earlier they're able to start that, the better the result will be for them." The event was sponsored by the Association of Diversity in Sports.
