For those of you who want to get a part time job in basketball this season, I’ve got a few tips:
- Check out http://www.workinsports.com. They have a lot of listings and you can sort by type of job (Click here).
- Indeed.com allows you to put in a screen for basketball jobs – I have seen a number of coaching jobs at all levels, including high school and college. They also have listings that might work for a weekend (helping to run a tournament or helping coach for a special event) (Click here).
- TeamWorkOnline has a lot of listings, although it tends to be more full time (Click here).
- Of course, another excellent way to find a job is to work your contacts from high school, AAU and college basketball teams and coaches.
Remember, getting a part time job in Bball can help you in whatever career you get into. I’m in sales now, but learned a lot that’s helped me in my career – working as a team player, striving for goals, working with different types of people – that came about through playing in college and working as a basketball coach at summer camps and a tournament operator in the spring.
Not to mention, its fun to work with a lot of fellow basketball players. The cash is helpful if you are a student! Looks good on a resume! Think outside the box!
