Larks Looking to Fill Two Ticket Sales Positions

BISMARCK, ND – Calling all SUPERSTARS! Baseball will be back in 2019 before you know it. So, we’re looking for two motivated, creative and FUN self-starters to join the Larks Ticket Team NOW!

The Larks are looking for a Corporate Account Manager and Group Sales Super Stars to join the Front Office Flock in early November. If you love talking to people, spending time outside in the summer and enjoy a non-traditional working environment, we want YOU!

WARNING: If you want to be a sports business version of a utility infielder, you shouldn’t waste your time reading about our open positions.

 

To become a superstar with teams, you need to first know that it all starts with tickets. Tickets are the lifeblood of sports teams. Once you truly learn how to market tickets, then it’s on to making sure these fans renew year after year. Learn these, and you’ve got the right ticket to run teams.

So, we start our people on our lifeblood—remember, that’s ticket sales. We don’t give a phone book or a stale customer service manual and tell you to go sell tickets. Our philosophy is train, train, train, and when we get tired of that, we train some more. Our goal is to accelerate your growth as fast as we can.
