Rupp Arena to Host Job Fair
Leading up to its 40th Anniversary this Fall, Rupp Arena will host a Job Fair on June 25 to staff up for the 2016-17 busy event season. Starting in October, when Rupp reopens, over 300 seasonal positions must be filled in departments such as Security, Guest Services, Parking, Concessions and Ticketing.
According to Carl Hall, Director of Arena Management, “Rupp’s 40th Anniversary season is going to be a blockbuster celebration of events ranging from concerts, family events and sports. We are currently looking for reliable individuals who are interested in working in a team environment. If you are hard-working, have a positive attitude and enjoy working in a fast-paced and friendly atmosphere, we invite you to come explore the opportunities at the job fair and become part of the Rupp family!”
“This is a great opportunity for energetic individuals to supplement their current income because the event schedule is somewhat sporadic and many of the events take place in the evening, outside regular business hours,” Hall continued. “Many of our part-time seasonal workers are professionals who enjoy being part of the energy and excitement of live entertainment and also enjoy that extra paycheck.”
The Rupp Arena Job Fair will be held on Saturday, June 25 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Rupp Arena, High Street Entrance. Applicants must be 18 years or older and will be subject to a background check.
For more information, call (859) 233-4567. Applicants are encouraged to go to the Rupp Arena website (rupparena.com/jobs), fill out an application and bring it to the Job Fair. If not able to attend the Job Fair applications may also be submitted online: rupparena.com/about-lexington-center/employment.
