How To Get A Job In Sports with SF Giants Bryan Srabian (Part 4)

Part 4 of 4 video interviews with SF Giants – Social Media Director – Bryan Srabian

So, we’ve talked with Bryan about his role with the Giants and how they approach their social media strategy.

Then we heard about some of the SF Giants most creative social media campaigns and how they have managed to integrate social media into their sponsorships in an effort to monetize their social media efforts!

How To Get A Job In Sports

In this final video interview, Bryan shares his best tips for anyone looking to land their dream job in sports.  Here are just a few things you’ll hear in the interview:

  • Why there has never been more opportunity to work in sports, but also why it’s more difficult to break in than ever
  • Why saying you “want it more” than anyone else…..doesn’t mean anything
  • The importance of setting your long term gameplan before pursuing your dream job in sports
  • Why you shouldn’t let Mark Cuban tell you that you shouldn’t pursue a job in sports

    What a great series of interviews with @srabe. Thank you for putting this together, Trevor! Bryan’s work with the San Francisco Giants is a tremendous blueprint for not only a sports team’s integrated approach to social media, but any brand’s use of new media platforms in the overall marketing and communications strategy. Every organization now has the chance to directly provide fans with in-depth, behind-the-scenes coverage, insight and two-way communication that can make them feel connected in unprecedented ways.
     
    As someone in the early stages of a career in sports, I really connected with Bryan’s advice to those looking for jobs – get into the industry, work hard, make connections, learn from everyone around you – once you secure a job or internship, become a sponge at the workplace. You may not realize it at the time, but every encounter will help you in the future. 
     
    Cheers!

     @cswitaj Thanks very much……Bryan was great to interview!  He’s definitely one of the ones that “get’s it” when it comes to social media.  And, I agree…..his advice on how to get a job in sports was easily the best part of the interviews :)
