Since SBA already has numerous members interning with Pitt Athletics, they have been asking us to promote their Academy for Sports Marketing Internship. We decided to invite SBA alumnus Joe Lassi, a Marketing Coordinator with Pitt Athletics, to come and speak about the internship and the opportunities that the internship experience offers. Joe discussed what an average day as an intern looks like and what the job entails. He then had the three current SBA members with Sports Marketing internships discuss personal experiences on the job.
We also invited our former SBA president Lexi Bovalino to come in and do a professional workshop. Lexi is a Professional Development Consultant for Pitt Business. In the Tafel Center she holds appointments with students to edit resumes or cover letters, practice for interviews, or work online on LinkedIn or CBA Connect. With us, Lexi had an informational presentation on resumes – what to include and what to avoid. She had many useful tips, including the idea of an extended resume on hand, which makes it easier to customize a resume for a certain employer. Having Lexi join us was a fantastic opportunity for our members to think about and improve upon their resumes for future applications.
