OK, so it's going to be a medium-long post, so sorry for that.
I'm 21 years old, in October I'm entering my last year at University. I study Economics.
And that's exactly the main concern for this post.
I'm a big fan of motorsport, not just F1, but of other categories as well, including bikes. My question is how can I reach this world with an economic background, career-wise? What should be my first steps towards that? There are a lot of tips on the internet but they're (almost) exclusively for engineers. I've seen that F1 teams ,for example, are asking for employees now and then, but I haven't come across an internship, or something affordable in terms of experience (to which I must say I have some, but completely unrelated to what they seek) and simultaneously related to my background or something similar.
I realise of course that I should reach for the minority, that small percentage of jobs unrelated to Engineering, so by definition it should be harder, but it seems to me that is almost non-existent.
Recently, though, I found out about a students' racing team based in my city, they participate in a league apparently called Formula Student. As I dug into for more info, out of 70 students, 5 or maybe 10 are non-engineering jobs. This Monday they roll-out their car, I'll be there to ask about vacancies or what skills are required and I hope it is something I can pull off.
Does it happen you know anything about this?Maybe similar low-end categories? Perhaps pursuit a Master that at least closes the gap between the two fields? Or is it entirely on soft skills?
I'll be glad for any advice/answer
