The ECHL and TeamWork Online have joined forces to host the 6th Annual ECHL Career Fair & Symposium on Wednesday, June 14, 2017, in Las Vegas at the New York-New York Hotel and Casino in conjunction with the 2017 ECHL Sales, Marketing and Communication Meetings.
The ECHL Symposium will allow selected candidates to network and interview with Team Presidents and Sales Directors from around the hockey industry including over 13 ECHL Teams, as well as representatives from the 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 Accelerated Sports Career Academy from Los Angeles, Calif.
“With the success we had last year at this event, we are once again looking to hire top talent into our League,” said ECHL Senior Vice President of Business Operations Ryan Crelin. “This Symposium is a truly unique setting for anyone looking to launch their career in the hockey industry and network with a number of leagues and teams from across the country.”
“The ECHL Career Fair & Symposium serves as an amazing opportunity for candidates and teams to meet face-to-face,” said TeamWork Online Chief Operating Officer, Matt Kittle. “Annually, candidates walk out of the event with job offers in hand. There are not many events like this in the country that allow people to secure a job in hockey.”
Potential candidates must register for the ECHL Career Fair & Symposium online at http://echl.teamworkonline.com/teamwork/jobs/jobs.cfm/-Job-Career-Fairs?supcat=613. Upon review of the resumes, selected candidates will receive a formal invitation to attend and participate in the event.
