Question Promotion as GM/Coach

So I have been managing QMJHL teams for about 4 seasons now and I am trying to figure out how to improve my profile from Unknown to even Regionally known. I have a winning record in all 4 seasons and 1 QMJHL championship and finished 2nd in the memorial cup. I screwed up that year and did not accept the contract offer, thinking something better was out there and then resigned before July so I got no score for the championship season ????

Do the big leagues ever come calling and make an offer or do you have to not be affiliated with a team to get an offer? Also, my contract offers have gone down every year which doesn't make sense.

Just trying to figure this out.

Thanks!

Also fascinated. I started as GM of the Halifax Mooseheads hoping to win my way into the NHL, hoping this is possible.

You're a lot more likely to get hired while unemployed; if you have a job, you won't get offers on positions that open up during the season, which will tend to be the majority of openings.

But if I follow the available jobs section, would I be able to apply? If so, do I have any chance of being hired?

If a human candidate isn't involved, the AI will normally fill the vacancy immediately, so it won't show up in available jobs.

So if I let my contract expire, will I be offered new jobs before the upcoming season?

So if your goal is career advancement, you have to start as a 25 year old, win some championships hopefully to build your reputation quicker, but ultimately you are spending 10-15 seasons as a GM/coach or GM in a league lower than the NHL or KHL, then quit with the hope that when a job opens up it is offered to you.

Yes, but best to do it early, so you're looked at when teams make GM changes shortly after the playoffs end.

This seems like a potential improvement to the game. You should be offered jobs while still an active GM during the off-season if it’s a GM position in a higher league....
