Monday March 31st, 2012Cosmos Sports Institute 11 concluded in November 2011 and brought out two talented and passionate students, Adam Gordon and James McIntosh. Both have since been placed with Tennis Canada as Account Executives and undoubtedly have a long future in sports ticket sales ahead of them..
CSI staff mentored Adam and James allowing them to develop their confidence and become increasingly comfortable with their sports ticket sales skills. The first week of classes was an introduction into the sports industry followed by practical theory in the second week. During a field trip in the second week, students were able to speak with representatives from the Toronto Argonauts, Toronto FC, Toronto Marlies and the Mississauga St. Michael's Majors..
After learning a great deal from CSI, both graduates were interviewed and then hired by Tennis Canada, feeling very well prepared for the interview and the workforce after their completion of the course. Adam commented that "the education, training and real world experience provided by CSI is the complete package," with James adding that, "CSI provided extensive, job specific training that can't be found anywhere else.".
Brandon Shaw, the Corporate Sales Executive at Tennis Canada also has nothing but good things to say, stating that, "Cosmos Sports Institute is the first place we look for candidates, and as a result we have hired 2 recent graduates that have hands on experience, knowledge of the sports industry and passion to sell tickets.".
