ESPN Talent Acquisition is ready to chat. “TweetChat,” that is.

Join the conversation about employment at ESPN, ask questions about entry-level positions and get answers about some of ESPN’s early career rotational programs. Use the hashtag #ESPNCareers tomorrow at 1 p.m. ET to get involved. @ESPNCareers will moderate the one-hour chat and select pre-submitted questions, as well as interact live.

Tuesday’s TweetChat, the team’s third, will focus on rotational programs listed below:

Program Position Hashtag
Content Associate Program Production Assistant #CAP
Production Operations Associate Program Associate Operator #POAP
Digital Media Associate Program Digital Media Associate #DMA

The first TweetChat hosted by @ESPNCareers centered around general career tips, while the second was held in partnership with the ESPN Stats & Information Group. They educated followers about various roles and opportunities within that department and hope to do the same for the three rotational programs above, on Tuesday.

“One of our colleagues who attended our last Twitter chat said it was almost like being in a control room during a live event, as it gets pretty hectic,” said recruiter Jason Hernandez. “Questions come in fast and furious, so we work as a team to make sure we’re on our A-game. It’s intense, yet a lot of fun.”

This specific TweetChat will focus on rotational programs that provide opportunities to pipeline and develop entry-level talent into ESPN’s Production and Digital Media departments. These specific programs allow participants to experience various assignments throughout their department and establish a firm foundation to enhance skills and competencies as they continue along in the program.

“Holding a social recruiting event, like a TweetChat, allows the Talent Acquisition team to partner with departmental hiring managers to educate potential candidates of the programs available at ESPN,” said recruiter Stacy Williamson. “This helps to engage candidates, extends reach and elevates and amplifies the ESPN employment brand.”

In addition to this specific TweetChat, ESPN recruiters regularly tweet information about roles, upcoming recruitment events and fun facts about ESPN. They can be found at: @RecruiterStacy, @ESPNRecruiter_J, @RecruiterErinG and @ESPNRecruiterTP.
