 Will the Football Analytics Course help me get a job in football?

It will help you get a job in football. The key word here is help. For the entire eight week course you will be in a class speaking with Aaron Schatz, Football Outsiders Almanac Creator and ESPN Insider, and Mike Tanier, Bleacher Report NFL National Writer, Dr. Lynn Lashbrook, SMWW President and NFL Agent, and other participants who are interested in furthering their career in professional football. This is your opportunity to be mentored by those individuals who are highly regarded in the NFL. Each will lead discussions that will advance your career. You always hear, "it isn't what you know, it's who you know." Well, the Football Analytics Course will not only get the "who you know," but in addition the, "what you know!"

You will also be networking with fellow students who are interested in improving their knowledge of the business of football and scouting talent. More importantly, you will be learning techniques and strategies that NFL teams are currently using.

The course content includes cutting-edge theories on how to evaluate talent and study the game. The course will give you information that will make you an asset to any professional team. Will it directly get you the job? Talking the insider language and knowing the political game is going to be a huge asset, but you still must promote yourself. The knowledge you learn from the course and the contacts that you make might be the clincher to beating out your competition for the job!
