Employment Bulletin - Flying Squirrels

Baseball is back in Richmond, as we all well know, but the newly minted Richmond Flying Squirrels AA baseball team is also having a job fair this week for their 2010 season game day staff.

The job fair will consist of two separate sessions with the first being conducted this Wednesday, January 20th from 5 PM - 8 PM, and the second this Saturday, January 23rd from 10 AM - 1 PM.

A comprehensive list of available positions can be found here. Jobs range from ushers and security personnel to stadium operations and press box assistants.

Candidates interested in gaining a position with the Flying Squirrels should come to The Diamond, where members of the Flying Squirrels' front office will be conducting on-site interviews for all positions available.

If you are interested in attending, you do not need to contact the team prior to the job fair. Resumes will be accepted, but are not required for employment. Candidates will be asked to fill out an application upon their arrival at the job fair.

The team will also hold tryouts for the role of team mascot immediately following Saturday's job fair session, beginning at 1 PM.
I think this tryout may be well worth sticking around for, as apparently the tryout includes challenges such the following - "Obstacle Course, Dance Auditions, Agility and Gymnastic Ability Testing."

If you're looking to further your employment research beyond the sports world, the RPL is here to help. Visit any one of our branches, where AmeriCorps volunteers are available to provide one-on-one assistance with job applications and online job search resources. Be sure to contact your local branch for schedules.

Additionally, the RPL has compiled a list of area employers and job search resources here on our website, and I'll be following up later this week with a comprehensive list of additional local employers that are currently hiring, so stay tuned!
