Top universities with the best internships include: Central Florida, Ohio, and Massachusetts Amherst. Ohio is the most successful with nearly 1,200 alumni in positions in pro and collegiate sports.
Evan Davis's comment, April 24, 2014 10:19 AM
Internships are really easy to find. There are agencies and industries everywhere that are looking for interns. The hardest part is securing a job afterwards.
Evan Davis's comment, April 24, 2014 10:20 AM
If you don't do well at your internship or don't have connections who can give you a good recommendation, it will be very hard to secure a job. Most people stay in there position for a long time due to the fact that jobs are not readily available. Once you have a job, it is very rewarding.

The agent will also keep close contact with the athletes finances. They will budget their money, pay bills, and update them on the money they have to spend. They will also fill out the tax forms.

Many agents will go to their agents games and sometimes travel with them. At charity events, you can expect the agent to be present. Their is a strong relationship between a sports agent and the athlete.
Evan Davis's comment, April 24, 2014 9:01 AM
Most agents will start in consulting firms or recreation sports. They will also start out in recreation sports and make their way up. Connections are very helpful to advance up in this field.

$221 billion industry. Experts warn it isn't the right fit if you are just into sports. The field is more than that. You will act like the GM of a store but in this case a team.
Evan Davis's comment, April 24, 2014 10:25 AM
In the past you got into the field because you knew someone. Now, the more education, the better you have to get a job.
Evan Davis's comment, April 24, 2014 10:27 AM
To better your chances, you should specialize in sports business, or minor in a specialty in business. You do not need sports related experience to do this career.

The 15 Most Influential Sports Agents - SI.com Photos

The stereotypical depiction of a sports agent is someone who's always on the move, always on the phone and always looking for a TV camera. Oh, and always ready to drop anything for a client. It's a description that fits Drew Rosenhaus, who since he began as a 22-year-old agent, has negotiated over $2 billion in NFL player contracts. Along the way Rosenhaus has mastered the art of manipulating perception. He guided Terrell Owens through a disastrous divorce from the Eagles into a $25 million contract with Cowboys. And he helped Willis McGahee, who had recently tore all three ligaments in his knee and was not yet able to walk normally, somehow get drafted in the first round of the 2003 draft. Rosenhaus was so confident of McGahee's first-round selection that he offered to give up his commission if McGahee fell out of the first round. Legend has it Rosenhaus mugged before TV cameras during the draft to create a self-fulfilling prophecy: by making it seem that teams were interested in drafting McGahee in the first round, teams would in fact become interested. Rosenhaus has around 170 clients, including Rob Gronkowski (who signed a $54 million deal with the Patriots) and NaVorro Bowman, who the 49ers recently committed to paying $45 million.

Drew Rosenhaus is one of the most well known sports agents. He deals with hundreds of NFL players. He has negotiated over $2 billion worth of deals.
Evan Davis's comment, April 24, 2014 8:46 AM
He gets a cut of the share of contract that he helps sign. He helped Willis McGahee get into the first round of the 2003 draft. He was even so sure that he would get drafted in the first round that if he fell out of the first round he would be his agent for free.
Evan Davis's comment, April 24, 2014 9:04 AM
Most sports agents work with agencies. If they work for an agency, the relationship might be less personable because that agent may have several clients. Drew Rosenhaus is one of the best and usually attends to his clients very good.
