The U.S. now has more coronavirus cases than any other country, and job losses are mounting in sports and other sectors.
These are unique times, and for many of you, very difficult circumstances.
Our hearts go out to all those impacted by the crisis.
Among the things we're doing to help is offering our Academy Essentials
online learning program FREE for all registered users.
The course consists of written articles, audio files, videos, and worksheets that are crafted to teach the strategies and tactics necessary to land a competitive sports job.
Our goal is to help job seekers learn, grow and succeed.

To our valued customers and employer partners,
We appreciate the trust you've placed in us the past 20 years, especially during these unsettling times.
The sports industry is among the hardest hit in this crisis, but it will recover and we'll be leading the way.
As we continue to monitor the impact of coronavirus / COVID-19 we want to share with you the steps
we're taking to contribute to breaking the wave
of the pandemic and quickening our economic recovery.
First, our employees are working from home and we encourage the strictest forms of voluntary social distancing.
Despite significant disruption to our work and challenges to the health of our business,
we'll continue to be the most relevant and valuable source of jobs, internships and career advice in the sports industry.
Second, we'll focus a lot of our career content on the unprecedented challenges we all now face.
For instance, our podcast recently featured Kenneth Shropshire, CEO of the Global Sports Institute,
who shared his well-informed thoughts on
the economic and employment impact of coronavirus
Please share your feedback and suggestions for future episodes.
Finally, with the suspension of professional and collegiate sporting events, the impact to game day and seasonal employees has been immediate and vast.
Some of you are facing lay offs, or may be in the near future.
To that end we've opened up gig and part-time jobs
, regardless of membership level, for as long as this crisis persists.
We also want to help anyone in need -- please contact our customer service team today so we can assist you.
Be safe and take good care of your loved ones, your colleagues and your neighbors. We'll only get through this together.
