Sporting victory

Liam Coventry-Poole studied a Bachelor of Sport and Recreation Management / Bachelor of Business (Event Management)

Workplace learning: Melbourne Victory

"While I was studying at VU, I completed a work placement with Melbourne Victory Football Club as their Media and Communications intern. Without that experience, I would never have landed my current job with the Australian Cricketers' Association (ACA).

My role at the ACA as Digital Communications Coordinator involves managing and producing all of the Association's web content, including articles and video, managing its social media platforms, producing both print and web publications

My VU course enabled me to become an efficient researcher. Sourcing statistics and finding information on the players is vital to piecing together interesting web copy and publications. It's a crucial skill when unearthing the professional backgrounds of players I interview. Understanding how sport is administered and the politics involved was another learning outcome of my VU course that has proved to be extremely useful in my job."
