Atlanta Job Fair Sponsor - The Atlanta Dream

Friday, July 30, 2010

One of the best parts about throwing job fairs (besides hooking you guys up with jobs) is getting to find great companies and sponsors that also have the interest of the Atlanta community in mind. For the August 3rd job fair at Philips Arena, we are really excited to partner with the WNBA's Atlanta Dream.

To find out more about the Dream and their contribution to the Atlanta community, we caught up with Sprague Paynter, the Dream's Community and Public Relations Manager. Take a look at what she had to say below and be sure to be one of the first 500 job seekers at the event to receive a FREE ticket to an Atlanta Dream game this season.

AtlantaEG: What are some of the Dream's goals as far as community involvement and giving back to the city of Atlanta? 

Sprague: Community involvement is integral to the success of the WNBA and the Dream. Owner Kathy Betty’s vision is to win on and off the court. The ability that a sports franchise has to positively impact the community was one of the main reasons she decided to purchase the team, and our players are totally committed to giving back to the city and making a connection with fans not just at the game, but touching lives off the court as well.

AtlantaEG: On August 3rd, the Atlanta Dream is sponsoring a job fair, which can have a great impact on the community and help people get back on their feet. What were some of the reasons you felt compelled your organization to partner on something like this? 

Sprague: Unemployment is an unfortunate reality for a lot of people in this economy. As an organization, it’s important that we help get people back on their feet that are in between jobs and seeking opportunities. Part of being a true part of the community is investing in people, so hopefully we can help turn some people’s lives around.

AtlantaEG: As part of an organization that inspires people, young and old, can you tell us a little about the experience you deliver at one of your home games?

Sprague: The Dream has a great on-court product, but we also take pride in our entire game experience. Atlanta Dream games are a great entertainment option because we offer affordable ticket prices and a family-friendly interactive game experience. We have a diverse audience, so we deliver an experience that appeals to everyone. From our “Dream Supremes” senior dance team to postgame free throws every Sunday for youth, we have something for everyone!

AtlantaEG: For those looking for more information on the Dream, where can we find you online?

Sprague: Fans can visit our official website at or join us on Facebook and Twitter.

AtlantaEG: After the job fair on the 3rd, what does the Atlanta Dream home schedule look like?

Sprague: The Dream has four remaining home games—Tuesday, August 10 vs. Seattle at 7 pm; Friday, August 13 vs. New York at 7 pm; Tuesday, August 17 vs. Chicago at 7 pm and Sunday, August 22 vs. Washington at 3 pm. Right now, the Dream is among the top teams in the Eastern Conference, but the stretch of games in August will definitely be important as the playoff race heats up!
