Global Sports & Entertainment is always looking to meet talented sports and entertainment celebrity bookers. We hire freelancers frequently for different projects. If you are interested please see below.
Sports Talent Booker
A qualified Sports Talent Booker has a deep rolodex of sports contacts, including celebrity athletes, coaches, broadcasters, agents and publicity representatives. They’ve also have extensive experience booking across all sports – NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL, NASCAR, UFC, Olympics, Golf, Tennis, and action sports, and beyond.
Additionally, the Sports Talent Booker has booked and onsite-managed a wide array of projects, including TV productions, live events and red carpets. Strong knowledge of the vast sports talent pool is a must, along with the knack for attaching the right celebrities to projects.
The candidate should have strong communication and organizational skills, be highly motivated, have strong interpersonal skills, and be an adept multitasker. Being a self-described “sports geek” is a plus. Projects will occasionally require employees to work remotely, but this should not detract from their ability to complete their daily booking duties. As the Sports Talent Booker manages several projects at a time, time-management skills are a crucial requirement.
Entertainment Talent Booker
A qualified Entertainment Talent Booker has a deep rolodex of entertainment contacts, including celebrity actors, comedians, models, musicians, agencies, publicity firms, and management firms. Qualified candidates have booked talent for various film, television, and digital productions, and have worked major events such as awards ceremonies, red carpets, product launches, VIP parties, and premieres.
They maintain a passion for consuming pop culture media, such as Entertainment Tonight, Access Hollywood, and celebrity-centric blogs. Strong knowledge of the vast entertainment talent pool is a must, along with the knack for attaching the right celebrities to projects.

Mastery of talent procurement logistics is crucial to our ability to provide exceptional service to our clients. Since the talent coordinator frequently juggles logistical details for numerous bookings, strong organizational skills are a must.
A qualified talent coordinator will also possess exceptional communication skills, attention to detail, multitasking abilities, and a vibrant, engaging personality.
Ideally, the candidate will have worked on a talent-driven media production or large-scale celebrity event, with experience in talent itineraries and/or booking travel, as well as interacting directly with talent to ensure an exceptional experience for each celebrity talent.

Sports & Entertainment Researcher
Global Sports & Entertainment, a Los Angeles based sports talent booking and event management firm, is seeking individuals with a superior knowledge of professional, mainstream sports (NFL, NBA, MLB,NHL, UFC, NASCAR etc.) as well as collegiate athletics. We are looking for candidates who eat, sleep, and breathe sports, are detail-oriented, fun to work with and have a sense of humor. We offer three internship cycles per year, each spanning a 16-week time period: Fall (late August to December), Spring (January to end of April), and Summer (May to August).
We work primarily with sports media, events, brands, and production companies to book guests for their programs and special events. As a small company, it’s easy for interns to play a significant role in short-and long-term projects, and make daily contributions that are implemented in our work. You will attend weekly meetings and will be asked to share your ideas about how to improve the product that we deliver to our clients. Previous interns have assisted at events featuring such talent as Jerry West, Adrian Peterson, Shawn Johnson, Wes Welker, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Travis Pastrana and more.
We typically hire interns to work two days per week from approximately 9AM – 4:30PM. Unlike your professor, who probably doesn’t appreciate you scouring the waiver wire of your Fantasy League during class, at GSE, we view Fantasy Sports experience as a plus. We’re proud, self-proclaimed sports nuts, and a major part of our work and daily conversation features a heavy dose of sports talk.
Through our references, connections, and relationships, GSE interns often find future job and internship opportunities with major sports and entertainment companies. Previous interns have gone on to other opportunities with such companies as Wasserman Media Group, Athletes First, ESPN, Sony, The San Francisco Giants, and more.
Those students interested in applying, please forward your resume and cover letter to email@example.com. Please try to refrain from submitting a generic cover letter – our paper shredder is already overworked.
