Great advice from Mr. van Wieren! I attended a pseudo-networking event on Monday night where I got a chance to hear the current Hawks VP or Marketing and Creative, Peter Sorckoff, discuss working in Sports and Marketing. Much of the advice I got from his is consistent with those listed here. He really stressed Lesson #7 and finding a way to do what you’re passionate about. Things don’t always work out the way you want them to, or you plan for them to but if you want something bad enough…you’ll find a way to get it. Working in Sports, you have to be competitive and you have to want it more than the other person and show a potential employer why you are so much better.
