— If you want to work at the 2009 N.C. State Fair, applications are being accepted at the two Wake County offices of the state Employment Security Commission.

ESC Chairman Moses Carey Jr. said the fair will fill positions differently this year in anticipation of an increased demand. “In the past, people applied for State Fair jobs at our temporary office on the fairgrounds. To better accommodate the high volume of jobseekers, we are asking those interested in these jobs to come by our Wake County offices. In addition, we are extending the time allowed to apply for the various positions available,” he said.

Applications for the temporary positions can be filled out from Sept. 22 through Oct. 23 at the ESC office in Raleigh, 3351 Carl Sandburg Court, and at the Cary location, 742-F E. Chatham St. Ask for Job Order Number: NC 7267092.

The N.C. State Fair runs Oct. 15-25.
