A Sport Management Career Fair by the Students and for the Students

Students gathered for the Sport Management Career Fair.

Students networked with employers in the Commons Great Room on April 3 to learn about internship and job opportunities within the Sport Management field. Hosted entirely by the students in the Event Management course, the Sport Management Career Fair provided a space for those interested in sports to meet with employers to discuss their futures and potential opportunities, as well as featured keynote speaker, Anthony Scheirer, director of sales at 360 Sports Inc.

“At other career fairs, sports management isn’t always represented as much,” said Sport Management major Abbi Komrofske ’26. “We wanted to put this together to give students interested in sports this opportunity to learn more about what’s around this area for them.”

In the event management class, students collaborated all semester to prepare this event for the Arcadia community, creating flyers and marketing materials as well as reaching out to employers and sponsors.

“Each student in the class was responsible for reaching out to an employer,” Komrofske added. “Someone reached out to Metz for catering, others tried to get sponsorships and fundraised for this event. We actually ended up getting two sponsors, Chick-fil-A and Langers Juice.”

A total of 20 employers attended the event, including All-Star Sports Academy, where Emily Schall ’25 currently interns.

“Even though we planned and are running the event, I like that we also have the opportunity to network here as well,” she explained. “I actually already have an internship with All-Star for event management, so here I’m looking for opportunities that are out there after graduation.”

“We’re really excited to network with students interested in sports in any capacity,” said Gwen Remaley from Full Power Performance Training. “I work in sports performance training, and on the business side of that as well, so anything they’re interested in we will have a spot for.”

To close the event, attendees turned their attention to Scheirer to learn more about the industry as a whole to help prepare for the next steps in each of their individual careers.
