2015 Professional Basebal Employment Opportunities Job Fair
The 2015 PBEO Job Fair, presented by DeVry University, will be held Dec. 6 – 9 at the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center in Nashville, TN. The Job Fair is an annual feature of the Baseball Winter Meetings™. This is a great opportunity to choose from a variety of positions, meet with representatives from professional teams and interview on-site.  Start your career by attending baseball’s most popular meeting and seminar to find YOUR job in professional baseball.  The Job Fair provides registrants a look at the business of professional baseball, as well as an excellent opportunity to find employment. On average, 400 – 500 jobs are posted annually at the Job Fair.  Many of these jobs are internships and entry-level positions.  However, some positions are for those with prior baseball experience or a related background looking for the next challenge. Most Minor League Baseball and Major League Baseball teams will be hiring for positions beginning in January 2016. Therefore, it is preferable for attendees to have graduated college by December 2015.  For those who are not graduating until May 2016, focus on Short Season-A™ Minor League Baseball clubs. These teams begin play in June and therefore typically start their new hires later in the year. For a list of these clubs, visit the classification page on .  For more information, visit the web and click on the Job Fair link or contact PBEO at or (866) WE-R-PBEO.

Getting from College to Career

In Getting from College to Career, Lindsey Pollak provides 90 tips designed to help young people land the perfect job and become successful and happy in their careers. This is a modern take on career advice with tips on everything from what to do (and not do) on social media to how to dress for an interview. Pollack relates her own experiences and includes interviews with dozens of professionals.  [Getting from College to Career:  Your Essential Guide to Succeeding in the Real World, Revised Edition, by Lindsey Pollak ©2007, 2012 Lindsey Pollak.  Adapted by permission of HarperCollins Publishers ISBN: 978-0-06-206927-6]

Last week's tip provided guidelines for professional-sounding voicemail and email messages.

The most difficult part of the career search process for most young people is the terrifying question of what they really want to do for the rest of their lives. The only way to not be paralyzed by indecision is to act. Graduates can start by writing an ongoing list of every possible career. It can be a very long list. This list will serve as a to-do list of opportunities to look into, and it can help focus one's direction or even provide leads for networking.

During a job search, it is important to remove the concept of what should be and focus instead on possibilities, which are much broader. Too many people believe they should automatically take the highest paying job or only look for jobs related to their majors. This can be severely limiting. Graduates should perform career assessment self-tests to analyze four key areas:

1.      Individual style

2.      Motivation

3.      Skills

4.      Internal barriers

This test will help graduates make clearer decisions about career choices.

Graduates should be willing to pursue clear passions instead of making only "safe" choices. Too many people regret not following their passions later in life, but by then it is often too late to make a career change. Graduates must be careful about sacrificing passion, happiness, or job satisfaction for a high salary. This is another thing that too many people come to regret later in life.

Job shadowing is a powerful and fast way to learn a lot about a possible career choice. When shadowing someone, it is important to be courteous and attentive, and above all, professional.

Twitter is a great tool to stay up to date by following key people in various career fields. Twitter can enhance one's online personal brand, provide positive exposure, and offer real-world opportunities when job openings and internships are posted.

Some job seekers may consider hiring a career coach. Coaches can help assess an individual's skills and talents and decide on a career path. They can help establish priorities and challenge their clients to think big. Similarly, job seekers can find inspiration and get ideas by identifying heroes, or people who have admirable, successful careers in the right fields. Once identified, job seekers can follow in their footsteps by learning about what they did to get where they are. There may be patterns that can be recreated. Job seekers should then have the guts to take the last big step of reaching out and making contact with their heroes. These heroes may write back with some fantastic advice, if not an actual opportunity of some kind. A personal mentor can provide a similar level of guidance and advice.

Next Week ... Talk. Listen. Repeat.
