Your personal website is a great idea but is of minimal benefit if sports broadcasting employers can’t find it. Now, you can include your personal site in the directory that employers use when searching for sportscasting talent. Link your site in the STAA Talent Search database.
The STAA website receives 2.3 million hits and 30 thousand unique visitors each month – all of them from sportscasting industry personnel. By listing your website in the STAA Talent Search, you’ll be exposing your work to employers across the industry. For just $4.95 per month, you’ll give opportunity the chance to find you.
“When I’m in need of a fill-in talent for one of our many schools, I use the STAA Talent Search,” says Learfield Sports Broadcast Manager Tom Boman. “In a matter of minutes, I can search for talent in the area I need and hear their demos. It makes the process very easy.”
Most radio and TV sportscasting employers prefer to hire regionally, whether it be for play-by-play, talk show hosting, anchoring or reporting. The STAA Talent Search makes it easy for employers to find sportscasters who are geographically desirable for full-time and freelance opportunities. Inclusion in the STAA Talent Search is the best way for sports broadcasters to make themselves accessible to employers, build their industry profile and increase traffic to their personal websites.
“An STAA Talent Search Link is for sportscasters who want to maximize their presence in the sports broadcasting job market but don’t want STAA’s comprehensive job placement assistance services,” says STAA CEO Jon Chelesnik. “It works equally well whether you are searching for full-time or freelance sportscasting jobs.”
Andy Roth, Program Director at 92.3 The Fan in Cleveland says, “I was looking for someone (for a job at our station). Finding that person without your service and without going public is nearly impossible.”
