First Annual Bay Area Sports Career Fair

sports career fair bay area sports and entertainment career fairSpring is in the air and in the world of job seeking that means career fair season is upon us.

And we have a new one on the schedule, the first annual Bay Area Sports and Entertainment Career Fair, hosted by the University of California – Berkeley Athletics Department, and featuring a diverse array of sports properties.

The career fair takes place between 4-6pm on Friday, May 2nd at the Haas Pavilion Club Room, with a one-hour networking event to follow and a baseball game against the Oregon State Beavers.  For just $10.

Seriously, 10 bucks will land you new professional contacts, potentially a new sports job or internship and an enjoyable night of collegiate baseball. I’d say the ROI is pretty strong in this case.

Here’s the kicker – the first 1,000 attendees will also receive a California coffee mug as an exclusive giveaway. Do I have your attention now? Since I am a coffee addict, I fully expect one of you reading this article to send me their free mug. I think it’s only fair.

Attendees will have the opportunity to meet with representatives from across the bay area in the fields of sales, marketing, public relations, finance, event management, etc. Teams and organizations will have information regarding full-time, part-time, seasonal positions, and internships.

Attending Organizations:

• Oakland Athletics
• Oakland Raiders
• Sacramento Kings
• San Francisco 49ers
• Pac-12 Enterprises
• San Jose Earthquakes
• San Jose Giants
• Stockton Thunder
• Stanford University
• San Jose State
• University of California (Berkeley)
• University of California (Berkeley) – Athletics

And I’m serious about the coffee mug.
