Undergraduate sport management students will have an opportunity to get their feet wet at the Sport Management Job Fair Monday evening. The event will be held at the Equestrian Center and will feature a number of national and local sport teams and organizations.

Students in the 225 Practical Skills class learned specific strategies as they coordinated the job fair. In order to secure their vendors, students reached out by using marketing packages they created.

“We have over 25 clubs and organizations at the moment,” said Clinical Assistant Professor Dr. Sloane Milstein. “I think this event will not only help the students increase their awareness and confidence, but also get them to start making those important connections.”

Organizations include: The Houston Rockets, Houston Texans, Houston Dynamo, Texas Rangers, Brazos Valley Bombers, and the 12th Man Foundation.

“We want as many freshmen and sophomore students to attend as well,” said Dr. Milstein. “It’ll be a great way for them to see the tangible things that they can be apart of in the sport world.”

The Sport Management Job Fair will be held 6 p.m. Monday at the Thomas G. Hildebrand, DVM '56 Equine Complex.
