By  | 

BLACKSBURG, Va. (WDBJ7) People in Blacksburg are already thinking football.

Rhino Sports and Entertainment Services is holding a job fair on Thursdays from six until eight.

They're the staff members who wear bright green shirts at Virginia Tech football games and provide security, check tickets, and act as ushers.

The team is looking to hire about 200 people to help staff Lane Stadium this fall.

"We're looking for people who have really good people skills or at the very least an affinity to want to be around people. So that's what we're looking for. We're looking for friendly folks," said Dennis Robarge, the account manager for Rhino.

Job fairs are every Thursday during the month of June at Rhino's on Research Center Drive. People will be hired on the same day as they apply.
