January 28th is the 9th annual Columbus Blue Jackets sports career fair at Nationwide Arena

The Northeast has this reputation as the mecca of the sports world, with multiple professional teams always at the top of their respective sports.

But if you take a strong look at the map, you’d be surprised to notice how many teams and sports organizations are located within a short drive of central Ohio.

Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Cleveland and Indianapolis all have multiple pro teams – while smaller cities like Columbus, Akron, Louisville and Dayton all have strong collegiate programs.

The Northeast is so passe, lets start looking for opportunities in the Ohio region! Who’s with me!

Well, good – because here is your chance.

The 9th annual Columbus Blue Jackets sports career fair takes place January 28th at Nationwide Arena and it’s $10 cheaper to register now than it is at the door the day of the sports career fair, so don’t put this off.

Events like these can make the difference in your pursuit of a sports career, because there just aren’t that many opportunities to be around this many high-quality employers and executives.
