Dream jobs are crucial in a person's life in order to maintain the ambition and drive for success.
Without a dream job, a person has nothing to ultimately strive for, and nothing to put forth his full effort into. I have several dream jobs, some probably being impossible to reach, but aiming for the impossible never hurt anyone. I feel that being a being a basketball scout for any NBA or NCAA team and being an athletic director of a university are two dream jobs of mine that are certainly reachable. I keep these dream jobs in the back of my mind at all times, in order to remind myself to always take advantage of opportunities and work my hardest. Everyone should research into their dream job to learn about certain connections to make or just learn more about the job in general.
To be a scout for any professional or collegiate basketball team is a definite dream job of mine.
It's a job that many desire and, especially in the NBA, usually requires seve ral connections. To be a scout one must be very familiarized with the game and must know how to evaluate talent. Internships with any professional leagues or coaching experience are both valuable. The most important aspects, like a lot of jobs, are the connections that one can make during internships. Scott Simpson is an advanced scout for the New York Knicks. According to his short biography provided on the Knicks team page,
Simpson joined the Knicks in the summer of 2014 after serving five seasons with the Oklahoma City
Thunder. He started as an assistant video coordinator and an opposition scout. He joined the Thunder following two seasons with the Houston Rockets as the basketball operations assistant, working daily

with the coaching staff while also assisting the front office with various projects including in-game and postgame statistical and analytics reports. Before his NBA career, Simpson spent two seasons as assistant coach at DePauw and at Cal
