“The Golf Industry’s Hiring Solution”

CareerLinks is the PGA of America’s complimentary award winning employment referral service that enables golf facility and golf industry employers to recruit qualified PGA Professionals for management opportunities such as Head Golf Professional, Director of Golf, General Manager, Director of Instruction, and more, quickly and without any cost to the employer.

CareerLinks' success revolves around two key components, with the most important being the professional services and assistance provided by a team of regional PGA Employment Consultants. PGA Employment Consultants make the CareerLinks process fast and efficient by providing employers with materials, tools, and guidance to facilitate the hiring process.  In addition, Consultants assist with needs analysis, position descriptions, customized compensation data, resume screening strategies, interview questions, and much more.

The second component of CareerLinks is a state-of-the-art automated database search system that can instantly identify qualified PGA candidates based on the employer’s specific search specifications. Your PGA Employment Consultant will work with you in developing a desired candidate profile and geographic search area, and then CareerLinks will search the database and notify those PGA Professionals who match your profile. Interested candidates will forward their resumes to you, and then you can review the resumes, conduct interviews, and hire the candidate of your choice.

Since its inception in 1996, CareerLinks has established a proven record of successfully assisting a wide spectrum of golf facilities and golf industry businesses in hiring PGA Professionals for a variety of key management positions. The CareerLinks service is complementary, with the goal of assuring a strong relationship between your facility and the PGA of America, and we look forward to helping with your employment needs.
