MOUNT PROSPECT, ILLINOIS (June 19, 2014) – The National Sporting Goods Association announced the launch of the NSGA Job Board, a new online career center designed specifically to connect employers and talent in the Sporting Goods Industry. The Job Board is powered by JobTarget, a leading provider of job websites and career centers for organizations that serve niche audiences.  It can be found at www.nsga.org/jobs


“The NSGA Job Board will be an excellent resource for everyone looking for the right employment fit in the Sporting Goods Industry,” said Matt Carlson, NSGA President and CEO. “It will be easier for job seekers to find the right opportunities and it will be a cost-saver for employers searching for the right candidates to fill positions. The Job Board will be a very beneficial service to our Industry.”


The service is free of charge for job seekers and member organizations to post jobs. The NSGA Job Board, similar to many of the nearly 1,500 JobTarget-powered career centers, distinguishes itself from generalist job boards in a number of ways; including:


  • A highly targeted focus on employment opportunities in the sporting goods sector.
  • The ability for employers to easily post jobs, track activity on those postings, send job opportunities to       NSGA members via email, generate brand exposure, expose jobs via NSGA’s social media channels, and more.
  • The ability for job seekers to utilize anonymous resumé posting and job application—enabling candidates to stay connected to the employment market while maintaining full control over their confidential information.
  • Access to industry-specific jobs and top-quality candidates—often not seen on the mass job boards.


To visit the Career Center, log onto the NSGA website www.nsga.org and click Jobs in the top navigation. Once there, member companies can post job openings free of charge. Other web advertising services charge more than $400 for one month. Job candidates can post resumés at no cost as well.
