NJ Seeks More Skilled Workforce in Sports Betting

“Sports wagering is a high-wage, high-growth sector that has already benefited New Jersey’s economy,” Tim Sullivan, who heads the New Jersey Economic Development Authority, said in a statement to NJ Biz. “Creating good-paying jobs and cultivating a talent pipeline to support this burgeoning industry is critical.”

The state is seeking assistance in ensuring how more state residents can find employment in the explosive field.

“Sports wagering platform providers, casinos, suppliers within the sports-betting supply chain, post-secondary educational institutions, relevant industry or trade groups, and municipal or county governments” are all asked to submit information, according to the Tuesday statement by the EDA and Division of Gaming Enforcement.

The one skill set notably lacking in the Garden State is oddsmaking.

From NJBiz:

With a shortage of workers with this skill, many New Jersey companies opt instead to bring in workers from overseas and Europe, the RFI statement adds, or train workers as part of the onboarding process.
