You're tired of your job, right? You'd love to take on a job with your favorite baseball team, right? Of course you would. And, you'd love to go to a commercial website known for job-hunting to look for that perfect baseball-related career move, right? Sure... We all would. Well, step right up and head to Monster:
(here is the link)
Now, why would I post this? Because, for fun, I walked over there to see what great Indians-related job they had... The first one is Pitch f/x Operator. I had to read the description just to see what the heck a 'pitch f/x' was and to see if I wanted to actually operate one or not. Turns out to be a cool pitch-tracking software app that this part-time person would run for the game and mlb.com. While this sounds cool, I'd have a hard time convincing my wife to let me take a part-time gig in Cleveland just so I could be part of the team I love.
The next job is sports reporter. This sounds like a very cool position, and probably entails actual travel for mlb.com. The 'bilingual' thing keeps me out, unless you count 'proper' english and 'barroom' english as two languages. :-)
The last job is stats stringer, which after reading the description is what we old fogies used to call 'data entry personnel.'
I am not knocking any of these jobs. The way I see it, if you can land a mlb.com job working along side your favorite team, you are well on your way to having a wonderful worklife. How many people actually do what they LIKE to do!? Okay, well, yeah, I happen to like what I do, but if I could work for/with the Tribe, how cool would that be!?
Of course, if I was just stuck in a room where I never actually got to talk with the players and stuff, that would kinda suck - so close yet so far away kinda thing...
Update: Right after I posted this, I went to Indians.com and looked up the jobs directly with the Tribe, and there is a huge list: all kinds of jobs.
And some of those are at the spring Training facility in Goodyear... So, want a job with your favorite team? check their official site page and scroll to the bottom for Job Opportunities... :-)
