James Pizzitola's curator insight, April 5, 2013 6:16 PM

All in all, you can say being a sports agent is a great job to have. You get to work for some of the best athletes in the world, you get a healthy salary, and you still get to be in the world of sports. However, being a sports agent, according to this article, is a tough job to get because of all the competition out there. I believe that there is so much competition in the world of sports agency because it is a very desireable job to teens and young adults once they realize they might not be killed enough to go to the next level in their sport, but they still want to stick with that sport, so being a sports agent will almost practically keep you in the game. 

Sports agents work as individuals, with only their clients, the professional athletes, to listen to. Their whole life is sports marketing and negotiations, which can get tiresome sometimes, but I believe is still an interactive job to have considering you get to be as close to the sport as possible. Sports agents work long hours, and almost all agents have gotten degrees in sports marketing or even a law degree. A sports agent never has any shortage of work.

From the streets, to the rap game, to the... sports marketing game? That was Jay-Z's basic path to becoming a sports agent in 2013. Even though hip-hop artist Jay-Z has never been any major professional athlete's agent before, the  hip-hop legend is considered by many to be a marketing wiz. Perhaps that is the reason why MLB star Robinson Cano of the New York Yankees left his world-class agent, Scott Boras, to lay his future contract negotiations in the hands of Shawn 'Jay-Z' Carter. Jay-Z has marketed everything from clothing lines to music companies to professional sports teams as a public figure, but never a professional athlete as an agent. However, rapper Jay-Z does seem to have a lot of potential in the "sports agent game" with big connections in baseball star Alex Rodriguez and basketball living-legend Lebron 'King' James. If Jay-Z can help get Robinson Cano land a huge contract next off-season wth a team, than who knows who will be added next to Jay-Z's new business.
