Question Looking for a Disc Golf job

Hi everyone. I'm looking for a job in the disc golf industry or anything closely related. I applied for the IDGC Assistant position with the PDGA but won't hear back until after the 9/13 application deadline.

Does anyone have any leads for other options? I live in PA but listening to all options in the U.S. Thanks in advance!

1. Good luck with the IDGC job. Seriously.

2. If you're going to pigeonhole yourself into looking for disc golf employment, you may be stuck in job search mode for a LONG time

Yeah, I'm starting to realize that... but I almost had an internship secured back in March. I had 3 dg companies interested, then Covid said "hard no."

Turn pro and sell discs out of your trunk?

I'm not anywhere near ready to turn pro... but it's definitely an idea.

Live in a van down by the river? Maybe many rivers, as the tour goes.

First, get a Bachelor's of Science in Disc Golf Technology, Manufacturing, and Marketing.

Resume is attached.

I've been doing a lot of course maintenance/building the last year or so. Also, providing opinions and ideas on potential new hole designs. I have taken classes in leadership and group dynamics, team-building, environmental and experiential education, event planning, sustainability. And I've assisted with course prep for tourneys.
