There are multiple opportunities open to sport journalism graduates. The obvious openings are as news and/or features journalists within newspapers, radio, television and online. Each of these media platforms is structured into local, regional, national and international layers, all of which require journalists. Behind the scenes in regional, national and international media companies are teams of researchers, sub-editors, production staff, editors, new media producers, columnists and subject specialists.

Subject specialisms often demand journalists with particular knowledge in a specific field, and those fields may form part of a larger organisation such as the BBC or Reuters, or have their own newspapers, trade press and/or websites. News, sport and features journalists are employed permanently within a wide variety of agencies, including news and specialist agencies, and an increasing number of freelancers operate at all levels and within all sectors of the media. The field of sport journalism has been expending rapidly in the last few years with the growth of sport supplements, radio sport coverage, dedicated sport television channels, and sport oriented websites.
The transferable and relevant skills which journalism graduates acquire on their courses, if these are carefully developed, remain in demand in the fields of publishing, copywriting, public relations work, in-house press office positions, teaching, sports journalism, media research, digital media production and academia.
