Our latest episode of the WorkInSports Podcast hits an area in the middle of a slew of reasons for career changes as we approach what employment experts are calling the Great Resignation. We’ll let Bre, one of our newest listeners, set the stage:

“My name is Bre, and I'm a new follower of your podcast –which by the way, is so awesome and informational! I saw that we could send you emails with questions, so I thought I'd better reach out to you as I am seeking a career change. I am 24 years old. I'm currently miserable in my current career choice. I am a recent graduate who has received her master’s in a health-related field; yes, I work in the hospitals/health. I was extremely young when I chose to major in Speech-Language Pathology, and now I feel stuck. I am a former college athlete who still loves sports and would love to work in the field as an event manager/coordinator. The only problem is... I have majored in Speech Pathology for both my undergrad and graduate. I do have experience in event coordinating (my part-time job) but not event coordinating in sports.”

How do I become a top candidate as a person who only has a background in SLP?

1.) Do I have to go back to school to get my doctorate or masters in Sports Management? I really don't want to go back to college, but if I must, then I understand.

2.) Where would you start if you were me?

I do not know where to begin in this process. So, if you don't mind, please send me all of the advice you have because I really want to be in a career that is surrounded by my first love: SPORTS!!”

The full episode will dive deeper into how to make this kind of drastic career change.
