MONTPELIER, Vt. (WCAX) - Vermont job seekers can head to the ballpark Wednesday to meet potential employers and take in a little baseball.

The Vermont Mountaineers will be hosting a job fair, organized by the Vermont Department of Labor.

It’s happening from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Wednesday at the Montpelier Recreational Field.

There will be more than a dozen employers at the event, including Ben & Jerry’s and Darn Tough.

All attendees will receive a free ticket to Wednesday night’s Mountaineer game.

This is the second of three events at ballgames across the state. Last Friday, more than 100 people attended the Upper Valley Nighthawks game in White River Junction, where the first job fair took place.

Mountaineers General Manager Brian Gallagher welcomes the opportunity for his team to participate.

“It looks like they’re trying to reach out to where the community is and that’s a great idea, they know people gather here in big numbers and the more people who can see their booth and display, I think the better,” Gallagher said.

If you can’t make it to Montpelier, the third event will take place at Centennial Field in Burlington on Thursday at 5:30 p.m. ahead of the Lake Monsters Game.
