Sports Agent

why does this interest me
Why does this interest me?
  • A sports agent plays an active role in monitoring their clients life. A great part of being a sports agent is that you have multiple fields to work in. You may pursue a career in baseball players or perhaps football players. This career allows you to follow athletes of your favorite sports, so for me I can pursue a career in representing NFL players or professional soccer players. I would excel in this career because I like to keep active in the sports world. This job would allow me to keep in touch with clients and also the sporting world itself.
