PokerStars, the biggest online poker website in the world recently announced that it plans to recruit a number of poker dealers during 2016 and plans to roll out a recruitment drive during the 2016 European Poker Tour (EPT). PokerStars is inviting those interested in working as a poker dealer to come and audition for the job during two stops on the EPT tour.
The global poker industry is a multi-billion dollar industry and analysts predict that the popularity of poker will continue to grow in the coming years. The majority of individuals interested in poker prefer to enter the industry as a player as it gives them the chance to make a living as a poker player and get the opportunity to earn big. However as the industry expands, there are also a number of poker related jobs becoming available in order to meet the demands of poker players.

Dealers who would like to audition but are unable to make it to the EPT12 in Dublin will have a second opportunity at the EPT12 in Monte Carlo. Depending on the turnout and the success of the auditions, PokerStars could also conduct more auditions at future EPT 12 events.
