Tips for applying for jobs on Teamwork Online Job Boards
HOW TO PUT YOUR RESUME ON THE JOB BOARD. In order
to be notified of positions that might fit your background, press the "Apply for
Future Notification Only". Fill out the complete application and you will
not have to fill in the details when you do apply for a job. Make sure you
fill in the notification boxes on the left-side of the skills page of the application.
Once you receive an email for a job that interests you, apply for the position and
login using the same email address and password you used when you created your account
and apply for the job.
BE LOCAL, IF YOU ARE. Employers prefer hiring local candidates
for most positions, particularly lower level positions. If you are applying for
internships or entry level positions and you have available housing in a market,
list a local address as a contact. (Don't apply to different jobs or different boards,
as the last address you put on your TeamWork Online account is the one seen by all
the employer(s) with whom you've applied.)
MY ACCOUNT. You can see all of your applications on
www.teamworkonline.com, update your cover letters and update each part of
your application. You can also see when you applied and whether the job is still
open or has gone off-line. Allow the employer 30 more days after it is off-line
before you give up hope from hearing from them. Check your inbox there too for any
correspondence from the employers. Lastly, add Teammates to your profile. They show
up as "references" on your application.
TAILOR YOUR COVER LETTER. Make sure you tailor it specifically
to the job to which you are applying. Sell yourself! Check your grammar, etc. before
you submit it.
APPLY ONLY FOR JOBS THAT FIT YOU.
CHECK YOUR APPLICATION. After you have completed your application,
go to "edit your information" to make sure it is correct.
ATTACH YOUR RESUME. On the last screen of the application is a
place to download your resume. Please make sure you have it on your computer before
applying, or go back and attach it to your record by going through "edit your information.
INTERNATIONAL CANDIDATES. If you are a candidate living overseas
and are a U.S. citizen or an international candidate and have a green card, make
sure you mention that in your cover letter and have a US address listed.
CHANGING CAREERS? If you are changing careers, please try to have
either advanced education in sports management or volunteer experience in sports
to support your interest in working in sports and place that in the Business Experience
section of the application.
JOBS AVAILABLE WHEN SEASON ENDS. Most team jobs are available
when the season is just ending rather than right before the season starts.
KEEPING RECORDS UP-TO-DATE. In order to be notified of positions,
it is important to keep your resume and email address current. Make sure you ADD
additional information on your record every six months, or when you receive an email
advising you that we are "cleaning" the databases, make an addition to the record
so you can continue to receive email notifications.
