The success of the inaugural event this past May in Scottsdale, Arizona, created demand for a second event. As in the spring, the program’s objectives are to raise awareness of the many opportunities available within the industry; increase understanding of skills necessary to secure specific positions and provide an opportunity to network and connect to opportunities for employment. “We’ve received wonderful feedback from our May event and are pleased that we have already placed several deserving candidates into quality jobs within the industry," says FORE HIRE President and Founder Courtney Trimble. "Aside from the camaraderie and information-sharing sessions, I think it was great to get so many thoughtful women into the same room, and introduce them to all the opportunities that are around the game that we all love. The sponsors also left the event confident there are many talented women looking to enter the golf industry. I’m excited to be able to do that again in Georgia in November.” As in the spring, the program’s objectives are to raise awareness of the many opportunities available within the industry; increase understanding of skills necessary to secure specific positions and provide an opportunity to network and connect to opportunities for employment.
