An all new design for CareersInTennis.com has been developed to appeal to a younger generation of potential employees for the tennis industry while still maintaining the same great resources employers and previous users of the site have become accustomed to.
One of the key functionalities of the new site is its responsive design, meaning that users on any type of device, whether smart-phone, tablet, or PC will be able to view content in an way that is optimized for that particular device.
"We're making an effort to appeal more to a younger generation and to help recruit new talent into the industry that will help build a sustainable future for the sport and industry," says the TIA's Ryan Melton, who manages the Careers In Tennis effort.
Careers In Tennis is an initiative that was launched in 2009 by the TIA in conjunction with its industry partners, to create more awareness around the viable career paths in the tennis industry to help address one of tennis' main challenges - a graying workforce.
With more than 40,000 annual views of jobs posted on the site, CareersInTennis.com helps connect those seeking careers in the industry with tennis employers. The services provided on the site, such as posting your resume (for jobseekers) or posting open positions (for employers) are available for use FREE of charge to both jobseekers and employers.
Another area of focus for the newly re-launched site is highlighting young professionals in the industry who are making an impact during the early stages of their career in the tennis industry.
"We're placing a focus on highlighting viable career paths in this industry," says TIA Executive Director Jolyn de Boer. "That's why we're also including a listing of Tennis Industry Magazine's 30 Under 30, in hopes that it will encourage other young professionals to explore the great opportunities that exist within the tennis industry."
In addition to highlighting young professionals on the site, the TIA is also using the Careers In Tennis initiative to reach across industry organizations to develop partnerships that helps increase interest in the career options tennis has to offer for college students. "Our relationships, such as those with the USTA's Tennis On Campus program (TOC), allows us to touch more young people who are at or nearing the entry point of their careers and what better way through a program such as TOC where the participants clearly already have a passion for the game," Melton adds.
