The aim of this study is to examine the employment problems of sports management in public sector. Firstly, instrument analysis was done and literature was reviewed. The dimensions of research were identified as personal development, universities and government. Interview technique was used as data collection tool in the study. Chained technique was used to determine interviewers and 13 interviews were done in total. Interviewers consist of sports experts and bureaucrats.  Recorded interviews were turned into text via decoding by researchers. Ethnographic content analysis was conducted to these texts. The findings of the study showed that it is really necessary to have personal development to get employed. According to this, improvement of administration and leading skills and having a good knowledge of sports field as well as education and personal development could catalyse employment. According to the findings, poor education, syllabus and quality of the academic in universities staff are among the problems. Additionally, the impact of government on employment shows up in the categories such as the problems of personnel selection and assignment, uncooperative of public institutions, lack of planning and policy. As a result, the employment problems of sports management graduates in public sector are evaluated as the problems such as lack of personal development, the quality of higher education and government based problems.

Bu çalışmanın amacı spor yöneticiliği bölümleri mezunlarının kamudaki istihdamlarının önündeki sorunların incelenmesidir. Çalışmada ilk olarak doküman analizi yapılmış ve literatür taranmıştır. Araştırmanın boyutları, bireysel donanım, üniversiteler ve devlet olarak belirlenmiştir. Çalışmada veri toplama aracı olarak nitel araştırma tekniklerinden yarı-yapılandırılmış görüşme tekniği kullanılmıştır. Görüşmecilerin belirlenmesinde zincirleme yöntem kullanılmış ve toplam 13 görüşme yapılmıştır. Görüşmeciler GSB’de çalışan spor uzmanları ve bürokratlardan oluşmaktadır. Ses kaydı alınan görüşmeler, araştırmacılar tarafından aynı gün deşifre edilerek metne dönüştürülmüştür. Bu metinlere içerik analizi yöntemlerinden Etnografik İçerik Analizi (EİA) uygulanmıştır. Çalışmada elde edilen bulgular iyi bir bireysel donanımın istihdam için gerekli olduğunu ortaya koymuştur. Buna göre eğitim ve kişisel gelişimin yanı sıra yöneticilik ve liderlik becerilerinin geliştirilmesi ve spor alan bilgisine hâkim olunması istihdam edilmeyi kolaylaştırabilecektir. Üniversitelerde verilen eğitimin yetersiz oluşu, müfredatın ve akademik kadroların niteliğinin istihdam ve iş yaşamında bir sorun olduğu elde edilen bulgular arasındadır. Ayrıca devletin istihdama etkisi, personelin seçimi ve atanması sürecindeki sorunlar, kamu kurumlarının ortak çalışmaması, planlama ve politikalardaki eksiklikler gibi kategorilerde ortaya çıkmıştır. Sonuç olarak, spor yöneticiliği bölümlerinden mezun olan kişilerin kamudaki istihdamlarının sorunları bireysel donanımlarındaki yetersizlikler, üniversitelerdeki eğitimin niteliği ve devletten kaynaklanan sorunlar olarak değerlendirilmiştir.
