On Tuesday, March 18, 2008 the NBA D-League's Fort Wayne Mad Ants will host the First Annual Sports and Entertainment Career Fair Presented by the University ofSaint Francis Keith Busse School of Business and Entrepreneurial Leadership. Theevent will be held from 1:00-4:00 PM at Don Hall's Guesthouse, 1313 W. Washington Center Road in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

Prestigious national and local teams and organizations such as the NBA, Adidas, the Detroit Pistons, the Indiana Pacers, the Cleveland Cavaliers, Fort Wayne Freedom, Spiece Fitness, Crazy Pinz, and several more will be accepting resumes and talking to motivated students who are interested in a career in the sports and entertainment industry.

"The number one thing any person who wants to get into the sport's business needs is an opportunity, as this is an unbelievably competitive market," said Mad Ants' President Jeff Potter. "Everyone wants to be in sports, and we are offering prospective employees the opportunity to hand their resume to the Pistons, the NBA, the Pacers, or the Mad Ants in person, rather than by email or snail mail. I am not sure there is a better opportunity to make a first impression."

The registration fee for attendees is $20, which includes admission to the Career Fair and a special networking session before the Mad Ants' game that evening, as well as a ticket to watch the home team take on their NBA Development League rivals the Iowa Energy at 7:00 PM at The Allen County War Memorial Coliseum.
