Good morning. It’s Tuesday July 25, 2017 and this is your first early morning Jobs briefing!

 

An industry growing as quickly as esports offers major opportunities for job-seekers, but you need to know who the job providers are, and the type of jobs they’re looking to fill. Each week we’ve looked at a different corner of the business, from publishers, tournament organizers and distributors, to the media, brands and colleges. 
 
Last stop: The Agencies. The rise of esports hasn’t gone unnoticed to the major agencies. With WME investing in ELEAGUE and Lagardere Sports partnering with sports powerhouse Unicorns of Love, esports is becoming the key market for agencies to expand into. Working with an agency might be the best way for someone who has no prior esports experience to get a foot in the door.
