Sachem High School students recently gained valuable industry insight from numerous professionals in a vast range of career areas as part of the annual New York Jets Sports Business Day Career Exploration Field Trip at MetLife Stadium.
Students from Sachem High Schools East and North in Lisa Anthony’s and William Ward’s sports management classes learned from high-profile Jets executives whose roles are integral to the success of the Jets organization. Students participated in engaging conversations on the executive’s roles and how they obtained their positions. Throughout the day, students learned about marketing, media content, community relations, finance and accounting, team merchandise, information technology and event operations, among several other areas in the organization’s operation.
As part of the unique experience, students were granted behind-the-scenes access to 10 key stadium locations, including the press box, locker room, premium clubs and the field.
