Our infographic of the week comes from Chad Collins, Founder & President of Legacy Search. Chad was gracious enough to offer up his time and insight into his journey of opening up his own company, Legacy Search, to pursue his passion of sports and people. Chad has worked in almost every capacity from the NBA to minor league hockey and baseball to college athletics and now owns his own national executive search firm that specializes in sports.
“Sports is a lifestyle. You have to be passionate about building a career in sports. You have to want to learn and be a sponge and soak up everything you can. If you end up landing an internship you need to be prepared to learn everything. Build relationships and learn from the hiring managers representing various business and operations functions for the team. See if you can grab coffee or spend five to ten minutes in their office. Job shadow them for a game and learn about what they do. The industry is so competitive now. I would recommend to students that are currently in college to secure an internship during their sophomore year. A few years ago, I had a high school student reach out to me during his senior year. He’s now going on his third internship and just a sophomore in college.”
