These Cats Not Only Rock, They're Hiring

Like baseball? Looking for a job? 
Then, get your resume ready, your interview skills polished and head over to New Britain Stadium on Saturday.
Opening day is less than four weeks away and the Rock Cats are looking for 50 to 75 people to staff the ballpark.
The team is holding a job fair this weekend to find people to help out, including ushers and ticket takers.
"Even though in some cases the pay is minimum wage and above, there's a lot of desire out there for these positions," Bill Dowling, president and CEO of the New Britain Rock Cats, said.
The fair runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and a big crowd is expected.
"There's been a tremendous amount of interest. We've had a number of phone calls and people have already come in and filled out applications," Dowling said.
To give you an idea of what's expected: last month, when CoCo Key water park in Waterbury held a job fair to fill 50 positions, almost 1,000 job seekers showed up.
Dowling hopes the seasonal work will help Connecticut residents get through the height of the economic slowdown.
"Hopefully we'll be able to hire some folks, get them through the difficult summer months and hopefully, by the time they finish working with us, the economy will be a little bit better in September," he said.
Dowling recommends that job seekers show off their personalities and know something about the Rock Cats before applying.
Baseball not your thing? There are some more jobs.
