Our Story of Passion

When I landed my first internship with the Pittsburgh Pirates’ AAA baseball team and then a job with the NHL’s Phoenix Coyotes, I felt great getting up every day to go to work. Meanwhile, many of my friends were dragging themselves to a job they hated. (And many of them still are.)

Then and now, I believe it's important to find work that fuels your passion. The inimitable Steve Jobs said it best:

"Love what you do!   If you don't then go seek it out."

While I was having a good time loving my job in the sports industry, I realized just how difficult it was for passionate, qualified job seekers to stay on top of all the available job opportunities.

So in 2000 my business partner, Jason Backs, and I founded WorkInSports.com to provide a service to connect job seekers with sports employers -- making it easier for people who want to work in sports to land jobs in this high-demand industry.

For the last 18 years our team has been building the largest and most comprehensive job board in the sports industry. We’ve connected with thousands of sports employers and created powerful systems to ensure we have the latest sports jobs.

Basically we turn the sports industry upside down. Instead of your having to search high and low for the latest job opportunities, we do the tedious work for you. The opportunities are out there! We’ve matched thousands of job seekers just like you with sports jobs at all levels: internships, entry-level, management and executive.

Let us help you make your passion your career.

Here’s to your success!
