Station RegistrationFall Career Fair – October 2, 2023

2023 Fall Career Fair
2023 Fall Career Fair

Station Registration is now open for this fall’s Indiana Broadcasters Association Career Fair, which will be staged in the Main Entry Pavilion of Gainbridge Fieldhouse in downtown Indianapolis — home to the Indiana Pacers and Indiana Fever, and site of the 2023 Spectrum Awards and Hall of Fame, which follow the same evening as the Career Fair.

On October 2, doors open at 1:00PM for station setup.  Job Seekers will be welcome from 2:00PM to 5:00PM.  The Spectrum Awards and Hall of Fame Event will follow the event that evening, at Gainbridge Fieldhouse (with a separate admission ticket). If you need a hotel room for Monday night please use our hotel block.

Station registration cost for the Career Fair is $50 per table.  While multiple stations can share a table (so long as they are owned by the same ownership group), extra tables are also available for $50/each.  All station participants at the IBA Career Fair are required to be members in good standing with the Indiana Broadcasters Association.

Parking is free at the facility’s Virginia Avenue garage, and there is a covered walkway that connects to the Fieldhouse or first floor access to the Fieldhouse via the Delaware Street entrance.

For participating stations, we ask that you adhere to the following four guidelines in order to receive an EEO credit certificate:

  1. Complete Station Registration before the September 1 deadline.
  2. Update your Job Postings on the IBA website (as this is the primary way that Job Seekers will find out about available openings.)
  3. Promote the event On-Air.  IBA will be providing broadcast-ready spots for TV and radio for registered stations.
  4. “Dress for Success” by putting your best foot forward as we look to attract young talent to our industry. This applies to table presentations as well as your team.  The most attractive and engaging displays typically win the most attention from Job Seekers.
