Careers in Sports Club Hosts Sports Agent from Roc Nation

Recently the Yeshivah of Flatbush Careers in Sports Club held their inaugural meeting. This unique club was created by students, Daniel Salzman and Ness Mugrabi, who wanted to share their interest in sports with other students. The Careers in Sports Club hosted guest speaker Ari Nissim. Nissim is a sports agent for Roc Nation, which is a sports agency owned and created by Jay-Z. He shared his experiences with the students and shared his journey to becoming an agent and developing his professional career. One  of the main points that Nissim focused on was the importance of relationship building. Building a relationship is an integral part about becoming successful in the business world. He stated that he received his first sporting internship with the New York Jets just by going up to GM Mike Tannenbaum in college and keeping in touch. This internship gave him a great experience as he proved that he was hard working. This led to a long stay with the Jets and then was welcomed to join Roc Nation almost 2 years ago.
The lessons that Mr. Nissim taught the students were that his little conversation with the Jets GM proved to be extremely important for his career. By keeping in touch in moderation and working hard, it is possible to succeed in life in ways you have only dreamed. The Careers in Sports Club is looking forward to many more informative meetings throughout the school year
