I get asked this question all the time ... "Brad, what do you do?", and it's always difficult for me to answer because we do so much and it's very complex. We essentially serve as liaisons between varsity athletic programs at the University of Michigan and the public. We do this by handling all external activities as it relates to our website, www.mgoblue.com, and accompanying social media applications (Facebook pages, Twitter accounts). We let the public know what's going on. We promote our coaches, student-athletes and our programs at large. The job is writing-intensive at times, but it combines two of my strengths and hobbies - writing and sports.
I still consider myself to be very lucky to be at Michigan. I applied for an internship a few months before I graduated Iowa, and got one of two positions. After spending a year as an intern learning the ropes, I was promoted to full-time status last August and am now starting my second year in the athletic department (third overall in Ann Arbor).
I love it here. I think Ann Arbor is the penultimate college town. Anything you want to do, you can find it here, and that's extremely appealing to me.
