If you like being at the Calgary Stampede but aren’t necessarily the biggest fan of spending a bunch of money, taking the time off work, or partying your face off, we’ve got the perfect opportunity for you.
Registration for the 2018 Calgary Stampede job fair is now open, so anyone hoping to snag a gig during the 10-day long outdoor show needs to head over to the Calgary Stampede’s website to sign up.
According to the website, 3,500 employees will work alongside 2,300 volunteers to make the Stampede a possibility this year, with jobs ranging from Park Maintenance to Business Services.
Potential applicants can expect some competition during the job fair, with pre-screening questions and group interviews used to determine who would be the best fit for the jobs.
It is recommended to dress to impress — Stampede dress more than suitable — and to choose as early a time slot as you can because the positions fill up quickly.
The initial time slots will be for applicants that are 18+ as all the younger than 18 positions have been filled. Younger people that want to work at the Stampede can still fill out their information for the waitlist, so they will have a chance at a job if a position becomes available.
The 2018 Calgary Stampede will run from Friday, July 6 to Sunday, July 15.
