Key Points:

  • Sports and social media are long days, but it’s worth it when you love your job.
  • There may be a position out there that you don’t even know exists (that was social media for her).
  • Strong writing skills are still important when you work on social media!
  • It’s so important to know someone to get your foot in the door for a job or internship.
  • MLB technically owns all digital rights for all the club. At first it was confusing, but now they’ve become more of a resource. MLB employ photographers, which comes in handy for social, especially during away games.
  • A lot of their posts are planned out for important events, but a lot of their posts are real time.
  • Her senior year, she started applying about now. She  got her first job because she went on the Chapter’s networking trip! (So come with us).
  • Get your finances in check and save up as much money as possible during that first year post-grad.
  • To make your internship application stand out, don’t let your resume be the same for every position. Tailor it to the application and show them your strengths with examples.
  • They provide guidance for players posting, but they don’t do it for them. They teach the players social media best practices.
  • Agencies tend to have an approval process but that’s not her experience in corporate.
