The Carolina Hurricanes recently posted an article to their website from the team’s Public Relations department. After going over a flood of resumes for an opening with the team, Mike Sundheim wrote a detailed account of the experience, and offered up some tips to prospective hockey team employees.
It’s worth a read and goes into details on what sets resumes and cover letters apart in the job application process.
On July 18, we posted a job opening in the Carolina Hurricanes Media Relations department. This is the third season we’ve had our Media Relations Coordinator position, a part-time, graduate-assistant-type gig in which the primary responsibilities include game notes and assisting with the @Canes_Gameday Twitter account.
Despite the fact that the job has irregular hours and a salary that requires an additional form of income, we received nearly 300 resumes in just a few days.
