Unhappy with your job? Out of work altogether? Always wanted to enter the world of Major League Baseball? Want to party with the Home Run Thingie? Don't like talking to the media?
Now is your chance to cross all of that off your list and fulfill your dreams. The Miami Marlins are operating a job fair. It happens Tuesday, as in tomorrow, so hurry up and get to Marlins Park (501 Marlins Way, Miami Fla.). The official release says "numerous ... Event Staff and Part-Time Positions Available," including:
Guest Services, Ticket Operations, Retail Operations, Premium Services, Event Services, Concessions, Grounds, Janitorial Services and Event Services.
The Marlins' objective is to continue to create an environment where a team of business professionals can perform to their full potential, generating economic growth, strength and contributing to the well-being of a diverse community.
Attire to attend the Job Fair is Business Professional and the public is encouraged to bring several resume copies.
Event services was listed twice; that means you know they need people there. But here's what the release won't tell you: Don't talk to the press! From Barry Jackson's dot-dot-dot column in the Miami Herald:
Besides forbidding president David Samson from doing his radio show, Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria also told Samson that he can no longer do interviews. That’s short-sighted, because Samson made himself more accountable and accessible than many team presidents, even amid unpopular decisions made solely by Loria. Loria, by the way, has refused to speak to the media since mid-November.
"Contributing to the well-being of a diverse community" means not speaking to an emissary of the fans ... OK! However, with so many not talking in the Marlins' front office, does this mean we'll hear from Marlins' GM Michael Hill? It could mean a higher ranking on The Stew's Sexiest GMs List.
