New York Football Giants Quest Diagnostics Training Center Job Shadow
East Rutherford, NJ
Job shadowing with Allison Stangeby, Vice President of Community & Corporate Relations for the New York Giants, was an amazing experience. I had a great time learning about how the organization works, and it definitely sparked my interest in studying sports management in college. Learning about the different departments including Community Relations, Broadcasting, Football Operations, and Player Development made a huge impact on my future career path.
During my one-day job shadow, one task I observed involved organizing Rashad Jennings football camp in his hometown of Virginia called "Camp 180”. Mrs. Stangeby ordered signed jerseys and footballs, keychains, and water bottles for Jennings' community event. During my visit, I even had the opportunity to meet New York Giants Eli Manning, Rashad Jennings, and Odell Beckham Jr. It was amazing to meet these players and hear what it's like to be a part of the NFL.
Overall, it was remarkable to witness the true insanity of some of the jobs in the sports industry. It was a pleasure to meet Mrs. Stangeby along with other members of the New York Giants organization, and it was an experience I will never forget. Dan Zimmermann
