Before we began recording the latest episode of the podcast, we had a long discussion about how to get a job at Nike. On this Pre-Roll Episode, we go through some of the best ways to stand out from the other applicants, and we discuss why the first job opportunity you get, might not be the best way to get your foot in the door of your favorite sneaker brand or sneaker retailer.
