Ohio State Fair Entry Department Clerk

There is an opportunity to work at the Ohio State Fair in the Entry Department! Responsibilities include data input, copying letters, making show programs, and other office work. Knowledge of livestock is beneficial and the ability to work with Microsoft programs is also important. Candidates should also be self-motivated and have organizational skills. A typical day in the office includes inputting of entries for various species, along with some copying of letters for exhibitors. It will also include some work with Creative Arts along with Ag and Horticulture entries. Questions about entries or payments usually required a call to the family or exhibitor for clarification. When the State Fair is in full swing, the daily tasks include entering/proofing payrolls, updating entries, and creating Fair cattle show programs. The timeframe of employment is middle of June to early August. If you have any questions, contact Barb Prince at 614-644-4052 or
