College Basketball Official (Former Employee) – Ogden, UT – December 28, 2016
Basketball officials are considered independent contractors. I enjoyed the travel, interacting with a variety of people, and the challenges that came along the way. A lot of networking involved. Rigorous study needed. Personality needs to be just right for this type of job.
Demanding in responsibilities, but rewarding in the show.
Special Events Intern (Former Employee) – Orlando, FL – November 22, 2016
I was a volunteer and not much was required of me; just clean locker rooms and keep everything clean and nice. Overall it was a cool experience of seeing the game from the inside right next to the teams and having the best backstage pass.

Basketball Player (Current Employee) – Tyler, TX – February 16, 2015
I gained great leadership skills and a hard work ethic throughout my times at other employments. The most employable part of my jobs were the flexibility of my bosses to work around my school schedule.
Sports Official (Current Employee) – TX – February 2, 2015
A typical day at work is umpiring a baseball game. I enjoy umpiring baseball because I never know the out come of the game. I have the opportunity to work with many different partners at a wide variety of locations. This helps me with my communication and navigation skills. People react differently to a close play in the game keeping my attention to detail and subtle clues in check. I have learned to work with people from different backgrounds and educational levels. Managing my schedule and the pace of the game are routine. Managing people with difficult personalities remains challenging. I have a good working relationship with all my coworkers. The hardest part of the job has been empathizing with the loosing team. The most enjoyable part is that I have the best seat in the house while I participate in the game as an official.
