Interview Report

This assignment requires that EACH student select 1 Administrator (e.g., managers, directors, marketers.) who work for a sport facility (or an organization that heavily utilizes its facility for their tenants to host sporting events) including high school/college athletic department/profit- & non-profit sport organizations and conduct personal INTERVIEW.

Assuming the role of a critical observer, each student will evaluate the administrator’s job/work (e.g., factors that affect their job both positively and negatively). The interview can take place in person or can be conducted via phone calls or online meeting apps. The primary objective is to provide the chosen administrators with a list of approximately 10-15 questions that need to be answered.

Interview questions will be crafted by the student (a draft will be provided by the instructor) and should be directed at obtaining important information from that manager about his/her job and the organization/team that he/she manages. This assignment not only provides the student with the opportunity to pick an expert’ brain as to what it takes to manage human resources in sport facilities, but it also provides the student with an opportunity to meet someone in this industry (networking opportunity!). Contacts are critical in sport (facility) administration/management, and human resource management in sport (facilities).
