My favorite hands-on experience in sport business so far has been working at the Sport Sales Workshop in Cleveland. I wasn’t a student participant, but instead a volunteer where I assisted with various tasks throughout the event. I am interested in event operations, so this was a great opportunity to get a feel for what that career might be like. I was also was very fortunate to meet many inspirational individuals within the sport business industry.
Orlando Magic is proud to be part of the Sport Sales Workshop and Job Fair."
I love your event. I have several students anxious to try it this year after the great experience our students had last year. FYI, two of the five students I brought out took jobs (Suns and Magic) and the other three had offers but elected to take another position or stay in school to complete their graduate degree."

"If you have any desire to be in sports business this event is an absolute must! I've been impressed with the quality of students and amount of teams that come together on this day. The training provides the students with a good understand-ing of how to sell in sports the right way. You are introduced to teams from all across the United States and from most professional leagues. I wish there was an opportunity like this when I started looking for a career."
