INDIANAPOLIS, Ind.– If you’re unemployed or just looking for a little extra cash, the Indiana State Fair is hiring.

The State Fair has about 500 openings to fill for this year’s fair. Some of the jobs available include ticket sellers, parking attendants and security.

If you’re interested, a job fair will be held Thursday from 3 to 7 p.m. at the State Fairgrounds.

Interviews will be in the agriculture and horticulture building.

Anyone in line before 7 p.m. will be interviewed.

“Everybody who shows up for the job fair will get a short interview with somebody here on staff, so that’s nice to get that personal connection and then we will call back those people who make the cut and they’ll have a subsequent interview after the original job fair interview,” said Any Klotz, the Indiana State Fair spokesperson.

The fair will hire teenagers as young as 14 years old. Minors need to bring a parent or guardian to fill out paperwork.

People who’ve worked fair before are encouraged to return but there will be training for all positions.
