Entry level Sports Job to Sports Executive. How to get moving up the ladder

Move up in Your Career; More Prestige & Make More Money

Sometimes the corporate ladder seems endless. Ascending it can be arduous and time consuming if you take one step at a time. It takes more than working long hours on the weekend, being innovative, and solving problems. You must act strategically to get up this ladder by becoming noticed and valued.

Look around the office. See anything? Know what you are looking for? You're looking for where the growth is going on in the organization. Once you find it, pack up your cubicle belongings in a box and get over to that department as quickly as possible. Don't be overly concerned if it is a lateral move - remember that rising tides lift all ships.

Start building a solid communications network within the company. This has many benefits from knowing the inside scoop on what Jack and Peggy - two interns - did last night, to getting inside information on job openings before they're announced. Any important reorganization rumors should pass by your desk too. Listen to them, and take action!

Don't just interact with your direct supervisor. Managers in other departments are equally as important as your own direct manager. Get out there and make sure that they all know who you are and what you are capable of doing. Cross-interaction allows you to showcase your talents to more people. The more people at the top who are aware of your skills, the better your chances of getting there with them.

It is a pretty rare occurrence to find turtles at the top of an organization. There is no room for people in shells up there. Most of the people there are risk takers. If you are even considering a spot at an executive level you have to take risks. Taking on difficult and risky assignments/projects - and successfully completing them - will certainly put you on the "fast-track" express lane to the top. Just don't get to far in over your head and commit professional suicide. Being able to determine if a project or assignment is difficult or an impossibility should keep you alive.


Concentrate on making those weaker around you look good. This also goes for your direct supervisor. Carry a weak boss on your shoulders if it's necessary, and don't whine or complain about it. Eventually the extent of your contributions will come to the attention of someone important.

Most importantly, you should never stop learning. This is essential in keeping you professionally viable and necessary in the workplace. Idleness will allow the competition to get an edge on you, and your value will quickly be reduced. One way of preventing this is by keeping abreast of career developments in your industry by subscribing to some of the best known online data pools of jobs and employers in sports.

Look for seminars or training conferences which are applicable to your specific field. Anything that increases your skills will increase your chance of becoming an executive. In addition, check with your human resources department to find out if the company offers any reimbursement for tuition or enrollment fees.

You know that you are an executive, so why let everyone else know!.
