I reached out to the company directly to find this position.
Reach for the stars. Act as if you already have the position and you are interviewing a potential candidate. What would you be looking for?
I organized recruiting events for prospective and current athletes. To do this, I helped develop press releases, media statements, and event conferences. I also documented correspondence of prospective athletes on official visits and participated in recordkeeping, arbitration, and maintaining calendars for the recruiting department.
The ability to meet individuals in the career field I want to be in and make meaningful connections was rewarding. I got a chance to showcase what I want to do and learn exactly what it takes to get there.
Being a female in a male-dominated field was the biggest challenge.
I suggest learning how to use Microsoft Publisher, AP style, how to write press releases, and be sure to either have an editor or proofreader on standby. Also, give yourself deadlines when facilitating events.
