AEG and the Kings are making extra efforts to help L.A. residents get jobs in sports. This year, the organizations are adding sessions on resume writing and interview skills to their annual job fair.
As many as 400 people are expected to attend the fair at Staples Center on Wednesday afternoon.
"We decided this year we wanted to do it differently, especially because there are not as many jobs," said Matt Rosenfeld, Kings vice president of sales.
Several other local companies and teams have signed up to participate, with most offering entry level and internship positions. They include the Los Angeles Galaxy, Universal Music Group, MTV Networks, KTLA (Channel 5), Los Angeles Clippers, High Desert Mavericks and CBS.
Admission to the career fair is $30 and includes a ticket to the Kings game at Staples Center that night.
