I’m just curious. Do you ever get feedback from these listing agencies indicating how much value presenting this information to the Fangraphs community adds to the eventually candidate class? I’m assuming it adds something, otherwise I imagine that they wouldn’t work with you in providing the job post information. I’m just kind of curious regarding the nature of the relationship.
I’m not certain, but i think most of these were posted at MLB.com and maybe thats where the poster got the information.
Teams actually reach out to us with postings. Most are also publicly posted on team sites and job boards, but FanGraphs is a place where the postings can be centralized and easily accessed for the job seekers among our readers.
I stand corrected!
Meg, occasionally a job is posted here but not elsewhere (MLB.com, BP’s website, Teamwork, etc.). Do you/Fangraphs have good relationships with some teams and that’s how this could happen, or are the teams trying to hire quick and reduce the number of applicants to sift through?
