Get a Letter of Recommendation From Pro Football Hall of Fame Quarterback Warren Moon and Preferred Status!
You want a job in the sports industry. The reality is first you’ll need to do an internship. How do you get that internship when some sports-related entities have reported receiving more than 2,500 applications for one or two internship openings, as compared to 219 resumes submitted per job posting on the Internet? The answer is a Letter of Recommendation from Warren Moon and your resume getting Preferred Status can help you stand out and land that coveted sports internship.
David Meltzer, CEO of Sports 1 Marketing, a recognized expert in the business of sports, and author of Connected to Goodness, has created Stand Out And Get Connected: How To Land A Coveted Internship In Sports, a unique sports-oriented Training and Advanced Certification program based on his own extremely successful internship program. Interns who have gone through his program have successfully landed additional internships or employment with just about every sports entity and in any sports-related field imaginable. Based on the success of David’s program, a significant number of sports entities use Sports 1 Marketing as an internship clearinghouse with Sports 1 Marketing screening and forwarding back only a limited number of resumes from the overall submissions.
We have had several interns over the years that had their initial internships with David and gone through his training program. I have been extremely impressed with these individuals. To a person, these individuals have been able to hit the ground running and were extremely professional. When the opportunity arose, we were able to offer a few full-time paying jobs.
The lessons I learned as an intern from David still drive and influence my decisions everyday. David taught me how to approach both big and small problems as a true leader should: fully evaluating all your resources, assigning tasks to the right person, and always keeping in mind what truly drives you and your team. These were all qualities David constantly exemplified and encouraged from top to bottom; CEO to interns. David's union of passion and profession is infectious and left me, as an intern, better understanding what drives successful teams, companies, and industries.
