BRYAN -- The Brazos Valley Bombers announced today two different ways anyone interested can join the team, even if they can’t hit a curve ball or throw 90 miles per hour. The Bombers will hold a job fair next weekend for those who want to work at home games during the summer. For students looking to enter the world of sports business and management, the team is still taking applications for its intensive internship program.
The Bombers job fair will take place Saturday and Sunday, May 5th and 6th at team’s offices in Bryan. Area residents interested in working for the team on game days will have an opportunity to consider what jobs are available and review the job descriptions.
Some of the jobs being offered include:
Section captains (ushers) to greet and direct fans in the seating areas.
Concessions, including serving or preparing food, wait staff, grill cook, and hawkers.
Ticket sellers and ticket takers.
Parking attendants and maintenance personnel.
Those who attend the job fair will be able to fill out applications at that time. Attendees will also get a chance to interview with a Bombers staff member when they visit, so applicants are encouraged to dress appropriately to make a positive impression. This is the primary hiring event for the Bombers, so those interested in working for the team this summer are strongly encouraged to attend.
The job fair will run from 10 am to 5 pm on Saturday, May 5th, and from noon until 5 pm on Sunday, May 6th. The Bombers’ offices are located at 405 Mitchell Street in Bryan, three blocks north of Villa Maria between Texas Avenue and Cavitt Avenue.
“Working for a baseball team like the Bombers is fun and exciting,” commented general manager Mike Lieberman. “This isn’t your typical summer job. Whether you are a die-hard baseball fan or you just like being outside on a summer night, working with the Bombers can be a blast. After all, it’s not often you get the chance to work where everyone goes to have fun.”
For those interested in a career in sports, the team offers the Bombers internship program. The program gives future sports executives a chance to take a first step into the industry by working with the franchise’s front office and game day operations. Unlike many internship opportunities, where interns are usually assigned to one department and get very little practical experience, participants in the Bombers program rotate through every functional area of the organization. The goal is to give interns experience in everything the team does, forming a foundation for a fruitful career in sports.
More information on both the internship program and the job fair, as well as application instructions for the internship program, are available on the Bombers web site at www.bvbombers.com/contact/employment/.
The Bombers are members of the nine-team Texas Collegiate League, one of the nation’s premier summer collegiate circuits. Teams like the Bombers bring minor league baseball-style entertainment to communities throughout the country, giving some of the best college players a chance to further their careers in wood bat leagues in front of Major League scouts. The Bombers begin their 48-game inaugural season on June 5 against the Coppell Copperheads. The team’s historic home opener will take place on June 8 when the Bombers welcome the Duncanville Deputies to Brazos Valley Bank Ballpark.
