Molly Fletcher is one of the few women in the world of sports agents.
When she was a guest on the Brian Buffini Show podcast, she shared about her days of trying to break into the industry. She told Brian, “My goal at every meeting was to get them to like me enough and respect me enough to either help me or hire me.”
Apply that approach to your sports broadcasting career.
Ask employers for advice, not jobs.
Asking for a job puts an employer on the spot. Asking for advice puts them in the spotlight.
Don’t ask for a job. Ask for advice, and you’ll present yourself as ambitious rather than needy.
