How To Become a Sports Agent
Here is what you need to do...
Understand your sport. Regardless of if you have experience playing this particular sport it is imperative that you are knowledgeable about the different aspects of the game you are representing.
Consider going to graduate school. Many of the top agents have advanced degrees in business, law, or sports management which provides them with the skills and credentials they need to be effective in their job.
Start your career by working with an established agency. Once you have gained some experience in the field, you may want to branch off and start your own business, but until you know how the industry works it is best to learn under someone more experienced.
Difficulties people often experience or parts that need special attention to do it right.
Most sports agents don't have a reputation for being upstanding people, so if you decide to go into this line of work, a little honesty could go a long way in building trust with your clients.
