There is a new way to get a foot in the door for anyone interested in a career in sports. Baylor Sports Career Network (BSCN) is a newly chartered organization that strives to provide job and internship opportunities in the sports industry to Baylor students.

'I had nothing specific to put on my resume to show that I was interested in a career in sports,' said Kristine Mansour, founder and president of BSCN. 'I also wanted to have more opportunities through Baylor to prepare for this particular career path.'

Mansour saw an interest and began creating the organization. She contacted a variety of Texas companies in the sports field and said she has initiated relationships with almost each professional team.

'I knew this was a concern shared by many students like myself who have an interest in sport careers as well,' Mansour said. 'Starting this organization could help these students to get a head start in the sports industry before graduation.'

Members of BSCN will have the opportunity to post their resumes on BSCN's Web site, take field trips to sports franchises and host prominent speakers from inside the professional sports industry.

Baylor students interested in joining BSCN can attend the interest meeting at 8 p.m. Monday in Kayser Auditorium in the Hankamer School of Business.
