Look at job postings for people analytics roles and identify where the biggest gaps are between your current skills and those being sought (e.g.,16.htm)

Not sure how technically rigorous your Master's program was, but being able to talk confidently about a data analysis/visualization project you've worked on is a must (can be with any of the above tools, but the ones I see most typically in the field are Excel, Python, and R). If you're looking to get experience under your belt, check out highly reviewed coursera or udemy classes on the tool of your choice as they will have practice projects built-into the lessons.

Finally, here are two free people analytics courses that I often send to those interested in the field to familiarize themselves with example projects: * *

Feel free to DM me with any more specific questions, good luck.

Unsure how many positions there are but people analytics is one entry point into working with sports team. Wharton's Cade Massey is one researcher I know who works a lot with sports teams. He has a sports themed people analytics podcast called Wharton Moneyball, which might be interesting. He also uses a lot of sports examples from his consulting work in his online course and has sports guests at the annual People Analytics conference:


EDIT: He's not an I-O but there's a lot of overlap between the people analytics side of I-O and econ, stats, cs, and org behavior.
