Alex Gimenez '15, Boston Red Sox, moderates an interactive workshop on networking within the sports and entertainment industries, as part of Cornell Sports & Entertainment Week.
The keys to launching a career in the sports and entertainment industry can be paired down to two basic components: what you know and who you know. This workshop focuses on teaching students how to network with sports and entertainment industry professionals and establish meaningful relationships that will help them land job opportunities in the future.
Part 1 of the workshop will be a panel featuring industry alumni sharing tips and best practices for networking specifically within the sports and entertainment industries. After the panel, students will be encouraged to join small breakout rooms throughout the afternoon. Each breakout room will feature a sports and entertainment professional with varying degrees of career experience. These small, informal sessions will allow students to seek advice about networking in a comfortable environment and make new connections with industry alumni!
