Ultimate Poker’s “Help Wanted” Part II: Getting Max Value From Your Industry Job App

Plug some leaks in your interview game.

Earlier this week we pointed you to a recent blog post by professional poker player (multi-time SCOOP & WCOOP winner) turned amateur mixed martial artist turned poker industry pro, Terrence Chan. Chan just shipped more career advice from someone who has made the successful transition into the industry.

The key thing to remember when entering the workforce is that despite your job or education gap, you bring value to poker companies! You provide skills and experience. The problem is, so do hundreds or even thousands of other poker pros who find themselves in a similar spot. How do you stand out from the crowd?

With every player that returns to the regulated US market for online poker, the need for people to assist those players— and create technology for them to enjoy—becomes more prevalent. Here in Part II of his blog post for Ultimate Poker, Terrence shows you how to not just get a foot in the door, but put a rear naked chokehold on the position you want.

Chan lists all the “Do’s” and “Do Not’s” in the blog but F5 reached out to Terrence and asked him for a pro tip … something he didn’t mention in his article.

“Best thing I think (that I didn’t mention in the article) in terms of getting noticed, is putting the job position right in the subject line. Basically when you e-mail, it goes to HR and then they filter to appropriate hiring manager.” Chan told us that’s the best and fastest way to get your app in the hands of someone who will know what to do with it.

We also asked him what positions Ultimate Gaming was looking to fill and he told us that while they are always on the lookout for Customer Service reps, the Technology Division is aggressively “looking to expand” and they “need a lot of people” to help create the next generation of games in the Software Development department.

Sound like you? Go get it.
