Daniel Purjes Sports Management
For Daniel Purjes, a career in the sports industry is the only option. A future in sports as a professional athlete has long left the picture; back in high school, when he didn’t make the cut for their basketball team. The next best thing then is to get into sports management, which is why he moved to California.
There are several career options for someone studying sports management, shares Daniel Purjes. You could get involved in the business side of things, crunching numbers and analyzing data to achieve the profit goals of the company—sports-related company or entity, of course. You could also get involved in the more dynamic and exciting side of it: marketing, advertising, promotions or public relations. Or, if you would like to get more involved in the personal and professional growth of athletes, you could work as a sports agent, trainer or coach.
As you can see, there are many special areas that you can focus on; and each one offers a rewarding career path, both in terms of remuneration and professional growth. For Daniel Purjes, the areas that he would like to focus on are those involved in marketing, advertising, and promotions. Of interest to him is how the digital age has affected, or dictated, the way sports, teams, athletes, and brands are projected and perceived online through social media platforms.
Wanting to get a head start in launching his professional career, Daniel Purjes deemed it fitting to create a blog site dedicated to the sports management aspects he would like to focus on. “It’s a good way to get your foot in the door,” he adds.
His Blog page is where you can read all about his opinions and thoughts about the current trends in sports marketing, advertising and promotions through the social media. He will also share his inspirations, and how their success keeps him motivated.
It’s not all about his thoughts and opinions, however. To keep up-to-date with the latest happenings in the world of sports management, he has also included a News section here. And last but not the least is the Sports Management page. Here, Daniel Purjes shares updates on skills, training methods, and other relevant information about a career in sports management.
Daniel Purjes is currently working on landing an internship to help him gain exposure and hands-on experience in the field. The reader can expect updates and stories about his life as an intern once he gets that internship he’s been eyeing. He’s keeping mum about it in the meantime so as not to jinx it.
