On the first episode of the Work in Sports podcast, Carl Manteau of the Milwaukee Bucks said, “I’ve always enjoyed sharing insight into working in the sports industry, the things I wish I knew when I was starting out. I love the idea of this podcast, and I’m thrilled to be a part of it.”



That summarized this whole project beautifully.



I’m Brian Clapp, Director of Content for WorkinSports.com and the host of the Work in Sports podcast. I’m sharing all of my best career advice gathered over 25 years in the sports industry, and I’m bringing in a bunch of old and new friends to do that same.



We’re sharing our knowledge with you, so that you can be better prepared to make your mark in the sports industry. Friends like Colleen Scoles, Philadelphia Eagles, Talent Acquisition Manager (episode 5), Mark Crepeau, Basketball Hall of Fame VP of Marketing (episode 8), Josh Rawitch, Arizona Diamondbacks Sr. VP of Content and Communication (episode 18), Chris Fritzsching, Detroit Lions Director of Football Education and many more.



Every Wednesday I bring in a special sports industry guest, like the names listed above. And every Monday and Friday I go solo, digging deep into a fan question related to working in the sports industry. Topics like, are sports conferences worth attending (episode 22)? What are the best entry level sports jobs (episode 17)? How do I prepare for a sports interview (episode 14)?



We’re covering everything related to sports careers, so if you want to make your love of sports more than just a hobby or escape, this is the place to learn more!

Excellent insight if you want to work or work in the sports industry!!

Brian Clapp is great! He provides excellent insight and tips not only about the sports industry but about interviews, group interviews, resumes, cover letters, professional etiquette, and using your tools like LinkedIn, and so much more. All of his interviews and his interviewees bring in great insight about the sports industry! Very professional and entertaining! “Now.. get back to work..”

Extremely helpful

I’m currently pursuing a concurrent degree in Sports Business and Business Law at ASU, and am working to absorb as much information I can about breaking into sports. This podcast provides so many tips and tricks I wouldn’t come across in the classroom, and I’m very grateful for the community of professionals created by Brian Clapp!
