GETTING A JOB IN RACING
HOW TO GET A JOB IN RACING
The best way to get a job in racing is to network with the people who are actually doing the job you want.  
EVERY racing organization or team needs help, and if you can make a good contact within that
organization, you will most likely be welcome to volunteer or intern with them for a period of time.  After
you have proven your worth, a paying job may open up.  Be prepared to start at the bottom and do
whatever needs done, no matter if it's your "job responsibility" or not - racing is a fast-paced and
unpredictable business, and you'll have to adapt to the needs of the organization if you want to survive.  
Be persistent - ask anyone you come in contact with if they can use help.  Have a current resume ready
to hand out.  Be willing to do anything.  Learn from a mentor who is in the position you desire.  You can
also go a different route and get a formal education in a motorsports-related field through the resources
listed below, which range from PR and Marketing to Mechanical and Pit Crew positions.  Getting a
paying job in racing is hard, so don't give up and keep your options open as the industry is extremely
fluid...new positions open daily and people are constantly switching around, no matter the season.
