ECHL and TeamWork Online to host Career Fair & Symposium

The ECHL and TeamWork Online have joined forces to host the Fifth Annual ECHL Career Fair & Symposium on Wednesday, June 22, 2016, in Las Vegas at the Monte Carlo Hotel and Casino in conjunction with the 2016 ECHL Sales, Marketing and Communication Meetings presented by Essensa.

The ECHL Symposium will allow selected candidates to network and interview with Team Presidents and Sales Directors from around the hockey industry including over 12 ECHL Teams, as well as representatives from the NHL, SPHL, and USHL. Additionally, the event will feature constructive resume and interviewing workshops conducted by TeamWork Online, as well as an introductory Sports Sales training hosted by the newly formed Accelerated Sports Career Academy from Los Angeles, Calif.

“This year’s ECHL Career Fair & Symposium is poised to be our most successful to date,” said Ryan Crelin, Senior Vice President of Business Operations for the ECHL. “With the added value of having on-site sales training and resume workshops, as well as the opportunity to network and interview with representatives from multiple hockey leagues, this event serves to be an excellent launching point for candidates looking to begin their career in sports.”

“The ECHL Career Fair & Symposium serves as an excellent opportunity for candidates and teams to meet face-to-face,” said TeamWork Online Chief Operating Officer, Matt Kittle. “Typically, several candidates walk out of the event with job offers in hand. There are not many other events like this in the country.

Potential candidates must register for the ECHL Career Fair & Symposium online at http://echl.teamworkonline.com/teamwork/r.cfm?i=94814. Upon review of the resumes, selected candidates will receive a formal invitation to attend and participate in the event.
