Tips from the pros for working in sports!

Do you have to be athletic to work in sports?

Not necessarily! Yes, the fact that you know it and practice it is a big plus, but you are recruited first and foremost for a job and its related skills.

Choose your internships in sports to enrich your CV from your studies

Test things, and as our sponsor Pierre Nigay says, you have the right to make mistakes! “To be wrong is also to choose, to know what you don’t want to do or no longer want to do“.

Volunteer your time

Take the lead and get involved through volunteer experiences. These valuable experiences will provide you with a first immersion in the industry, as well as demonstrate your motivation and commitment to a recruiter.

Dream big, but take your career one step at a time

With his experience as a journalist, Pierre Nigay, the sponsor of the OMNES Education Sport division, confided to the students: “Before going to cover the conflict in Kosovo, you have to go to the sausage festival in the next village. I loved it, that’s how you learn!”

Don’t just look at the big groups

It can be very formative and exciting to work in an agency for example. Starting out in smaller organizations will give you more agility and autonomy, and may open doors to larger groups for the next stage of your career.

The portrait

From sportswoman to businesswoman, there is only one step… or one stride! Sports coach, extreme athlete, yachtswoman, author and now company director: Marine Leleu’s hats are countless. The young woman from Nantes created her “most beautiful job in the world”. Understand, that of taking up (slightly) crazy sporting challenges and of living life to the full!
