Racing to find a job

I interviewed Alex Simpson about his time as a student-athlete and highlighting what he’s passionate about. Alex loves sports and wants to work in the sports industry. With the experience he has gained at Washington State University, Alex would like to work for ROOT sports or ESPN, but his dream job would be to work for the Seattle Mariners.

You do not have to look far to realize how big of a Mariners fan Alex is. Whether you see him on campus wearing a Mariners hat or take a look at his social media accounts. Alex is true to the blue.

After the interview was the harder and more frustrating part. I then spent two hours editing the interview and letting videos encode and render so that the quality would be the best it could be. The whole process was very draining because I waited until Friday afternoon to start editing my project.

For the most part I did enjoy the experience. I did not know what Alex wanted to work for a sports broadcasting company or ideally work for the Mariners. I also did not know about how Alex came to WSU or that he was a WSU fan since a very young age so asking him those questions and learning about his journey to WSU was very cool.

I know that Alex will be successful in the sports broadcasting industry because he has gained valuable experience while at WSU and will take his experience and implement it in his career choice. He has an incredible desire and will not stop until he is where he wants to be.
