Just an observation..... Most of the young sports turf managers coming out of school directly look for a position in professional and/or college athletics. While those jobs are good jobs and come with perks, there are many other jobs in the industry.
City/Municipal positions and positions with school districts often pay as much or more than professional/college positions with better benefits, hours, etc. Also, positions in sales and service/construction companies provide young professionals a wide range of experience at all levels of maintenance and expectations.
So, don’t be shy and expand your job opportunities/search. You may just find a better and more rewarding position outside of the professional/collegiate ranks.
