"He May Go All The Way!"
Jay (BS '12) - 12/23/2011
Jay has a passion for professional sports and really wants to work in the industry after graduation. He has no contacts in the industry, had no idea where to begin searching for positions, and also knew very little about different career paths. Through Kelley inCircle, Jay got in contact with 4 Kelley alums in the professional sports industry. Scott (BS '06) with the MLB Commisioner's Office, Rob (MBA '03) with the Orlando Magic, Adam (BS '10) with the New Jersey Nets, and John (BS '84) with the NFL Network. People in the professional sports industry are inundated with networking requests so they often must be selective with whom they connect. ALL four alums returned Jay's message and agreed to speak with him. Through those conversations, Jay received invaluable information about the industry, advice on how to get into it, offers to connect him with other contacts in the industry, and a willingness to assist going forward.
