In order to staff up for a busy 2021-22 event season, Rupp Arena will host a job fair on July 24th from 11am – 4pm.  Starting in September, when Rupp reopens, over 300 seasonal positions are available in departments such as Security, Guest Services, Box Office, Parking, and Concessions. 

According to Carl Hall, Director of Arena Management, “This season is going to be busy with a full roster of events ranging from concerts, family events and sports. We are currently looking for reliable individuals who are interested in seasonal work 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. Many of the events take place in the evening, outside regular business hours,” Hall continued. “Typically, our part-time seasonal workers are college students, teachers, active/retired first responders, retired professionals, and others who enjoy being part of the energy and excitement of live entertainment and also enjoy that extra paycheck for padding the vacation fund or holiday expenses.”

The Rupp Arena Job Fair will take place on Saturday, July 24th from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Central Bank Center, High Street Entrance.  Applicants must be 18 years or older and may be subject to a background check and a drug test.

There are additional full-time opportunities in Event Support (setup/strike/cleanup) that will be part of the job fair as well.
