ECHL, TeamWork Online announce Career Fair


The ECHL and TeamWork Online have joined forces to host the ECHL Career Fair on Wednesday, June 24 in Las Vegas at the Monte Carlo Hotel and Casino.

ECHL Team Presidents and Sales Directors from 14 Member Teams will be interviewing and selecting candidates for multiple positions including Ticket Sales, Sponsorship Sales and Marketing Management in conjunction with the 2015 ECHL Sales, Marketing and Communication Meetings presented by Essensa.

“We are excited to once again be hosting the ECHL Career Fair in preparation for our 2015-16 Season,” said ECHL Senior Vice President of Business Operations Ryan Crelin. “This format allows our teams to interview a number of deserving candidates as they look to fill key roles on their staff, while giving individuals an opportunity to interview with multiple ECHL clubs in a single location as they look to start or advance their sport careers.”

“This will mark the fourth time TeamWork Online and the ECHL have held the Career Fair in Las Vegas,” said TeamWork Online Chief Growth Officer Matt Kittle. “It serves as an excellent opportunity for teams and candidates to meet, often resulting in teams making hires on location.”

Potential candidates must register for the Career Fair online at echl.teamworkonline.com. Upon review of the resumes, selected candidates will receive a formal invitation to attend and participate in the ECHL Career Fair.
