The South Windsor-based ticket exchange company, is looking for new personnel in software engineering, customer service, software sales, account managing and other positions. The job fair will be held at TicketNetwork’s headquarters at 83 Gerber Road, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Aug. 30.
TIcketNetwork CEO Don Vaccaro will be on hand for the event, which several hundred applicants are expected to attend.
“The company is working to reach job goals outlined in Governor Malloy’s ‘First Five’ program, which includes hiring up to 200 people in the next 24 months,” the press release said.
The state offered the company a $4.5 million, 10-year state loan to create between 200 and 600 jobs over the next 10 years. In addition to the loan, TicketNetwork can receive a five year $1.8 million loan from the Connecticut Development Authority for information technology, furniture and fixtures.
