Bulls Sales Manager / Special Events Chip Hutchinson and Former Sales Manager Matt West “dreamed up” the “Field of Dreams” Career Expo last year. In making calls about sponsorships for the Bulls, Hutchinson got the response from a lot of companies that they purchased Bulls sponsorships for recruiting purposes. The many Triangle companies compete for the same people. Hutchinson said, “We wanted to offer an event they could strictly use for recruiting.” Thus the Bulls Job Fair was born. Because of the success of the event, with a name change to Career Expo, the job fair will be an annual event at the ballpark.
