My name is Erika Baranek, I am a 22-year old aspiring young communication studies professional with a passion for the sport industry. I am a recent graduate from The University of Alabama, where I majored in Communication Studies and minored in Computing Technologies & Applications while rowing at the D1 level. I have extensive experience that is applicable in sports entertainment, including areas such as leadership training, teaching, internal communications, social media, organizational communication consulting, sales, and marketing. I am currently searching for post-graduate internships, related opportunities and entry-level positions within the athletic communications field or sports industry. My future goal is to either work for an NFL team, ESPN, an elite training facility, or at the collegiate level.
