If you’ve been looking closely you may have noticed that the new wave of legalized online poker sites has created more than just action: They have also been creating jobs.
As the industry returns to the United States at a rapid pace, online operators like Ultimate Poker (UP) will be looking for new employees that understand poker and have a specific skill set to help race to the top.
Online poker pro turned online poker industry professional Terrence Chan points out in a recent UP blog post that not everyone who put in the hours on the virtual felt made it rich before Black Friday hit, but that doesn’t mean you didn’t learn something valuable. Both former professionals and poker enthusiasts alike have an opportunity to bring their passion and skills to the marketplace.
The good news, if you’re one of these people, is that your experience playing hours of online poker, participating in forums, and generally being involved in the poker industry, makes you a valuable asset to online poker sites, including Ultimate Poker. At Ultimate Poker, we employ dozens of poker players in customer service, game room operations, product management, marketing and technology – all the way from entry level to senior executive.
In short, there may be a place in this re-emerging industry if you are willing to bring your poker acumen and merge it with some business savvy, there could be a big payday, of a different sort, on the horizon.
