It has been a few weeks since I have posted jobs jobs on this blog and while the media reported yesterday the largest hiring spree in nearly five years, jobs for many remain elusive. I have written in the past how many sports jobs are never advertised or are only done to satisfy HR requirements. That said, if it is listed or mentioned, I am bound to help provide you with a few leads on sportsinfo101.com.
Today we feature sports jobs ranging from Vice President of Marketing, Director of Sports and Entertainment to a program coordinator and a production assistant. Job locations vary from New York to California. The difference however in today’s post is that every listing I have researched and posted here was also posted publicly on LinkedIn. I am an active business networker on this site, though I use LinkedIn to stay in contact with business people I have collaborated with over the years. If you’d like to connect with me personally, you can find me on Twitter @sportsinfo101 or join the sportinfo101.com facebook page by clicking here.
These listings are also meant to help others. If you find this information valuable or know someone else that would find it valuable, I kindly ask you to use your social media to repost on places like Facebook and Twitter or just email the link of this post to others.
