Get started in Orlando and launch your Baseball Career at the 20th Annual PBEO Job Fair!

Baseball America

The PBEO Job Fair will be held at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort in Orlando, Fla., from December 8-11, 2013. The Job Fair is an annual feature of the Baseball Winter Meetings. This is a great opportunity to meet with representatives from professional teams, interview on-site and choose from a variety of positions.

Get in on the ground floor and build your future by attending baseball's most popular meeting and seminar to find YOUR job in professional baseball.

The PBEO Job Fair provides registrants a look at the business of professional baseball, as well as an excellent opportunity to find employment. On average, 450-550 jobs are posted annually at the Job Fair.

Most of these jobs are internships and entry-level positions

However, some positions are for those with prior baseball experience or a related background looking for the next challenge. Most Minor League Baseball and Major League Baseball teams will be hiring for positions beginning in January 2014. Therefore, it is preferable for attendees to be on track to graduate college by December 2013.

For those of you who are not graduating until May 2014, make sure to focus on Short Season Minor League Baseball clubs, as they do not start play until June and therefore typically start their new-hires later in the year. For a list of these clubs, please visit the classification page on MiLB.com.

See more specifics on the Job Fair General Information page.
