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 www.MiLB.com . For more information, visit the web and click on the Job Fair link or contact PBEO at Info@PBEO.com or (866) WE-R-PBEO.

OUT WHAT YOU WANT…AND WHAT YOU DON'T
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.
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:
test will help graduates make clearer decisions about career choices.
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.
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.
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.
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.
