Any one have luck after law school entering into the field as an NFL agent?
I love the game and this is the next best thing other than playing for me.
I can only speculate an answer and am only answering because nobody else has.
Being an agent for NFL players is a career that would only appeal to the following types of people:
1. People who like to work with celebrities.
2. People who like the NFL.
3. People who want to get 15% of the negotiated salary of a handful of NFL players.
Basically, it might be easier to make a list of people who would NOT want to be a sports agent, than it would be to make a list of people who would want to be.
That would seem to indicate an exceptionally hypercompetitive environment.
I really can't even claim secondhand knowledge on something like this, but would imagine that getting a job at a place like IMG is hypercompetitive. It's probably easier to get into biglaw.
Just my poorly-informed opinion on the subject. Take it for what it's worth. I'd say keep this as a goal, but have a very strong plan B in mind.
