    In the third release of CoSIDA’s 2020 Compensation and Career Satisfaction Survey data, we take a deep dive into benefits and salary in addition to what makes the job of athletics communicator great and what could make it even better. As illustrated in the graphic, CoSIDA members are the beneficiaries of great extras like professional development, flexibility and free stuff — the most sought-after benefits by communications professionals across industries. The graphic also includes what makes the job special and what could be done to make it a more viable career option for someone just getting into college athletics.

    Paul Smith (Texas Woman’s University) interviews fellow CoSIDA Advocacy Committee member Akilah Laster (Tennessee) to find out what it was about the job that attracted her, what advice she would give to someone about the career, highlights from her journey so far and how she hopes to make a difference in the profession by helping improve diversity and cultural competence.
