    To whom it may concern,
    I’m a junior sports marketing and economics double major at Saint Joseph’s University with a 3.2 GPA. I’m interested in working for thebusinessofsports.com over this coming summer and/or fall as I am very interested in learning more about the business behind sports.

    Thanks for your time,
    Jim Brier
