Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication: May 2010
Event Production at ESPN
Through the resources in the UGA Career Center, I was able to meet with recruiters from ESPN my last semester in school. I was able to build valuable networking relationships and contacts to answer all of my questions and provide me with constructive advice and mentorship. Within 2 months of graduation, I was offered a job. Within a year, I had opportunities to advance positions. I have had several productions on air, and have worked directly on Summer X Games, College Football, College Basketball, and assisted with World Cup.
ESPN is a great company to work for and the opportunities are endless. The University of Georgia did a great job preparing me for the real world success. The career networking opportunities that the University provides are one-of-a-kind and truly beneficial. I recommend everyone take advantage of the resources available through the Career Center.
