When ESPN Boston started up in 2010 Scott Barboza landed one of the two positions, along with Brendan Hall, on the high school beat. How did he do it? He networked, from his job in the New England Patriots media relations department, Barboza explains in this interview.
But networking isn’t all of it. Barboza came straight out of Fall River with an Emerson College (2005) degree, a taste for fine dining, and an intellect that ranges from the work of Stephen Hawking to Jean-Pierre Jeunet to Gordon Edes.
Being the right person in the right place at the right time is a career skill not taught in college, or anywhere, for that matter. Barboza offers his advice.
