A hiring blitz is underway to build the largest construction project in the state, the new Vikings stadium.
The Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority held a training session and a job fair at the Sabathani Community Center in Minneapolis on Thursday.
Officials were especially hoping to recruit women, minorities, and veterans. The MSFA says they're looking to hire at least 7,500 workers.
You can still apply, there's information on the sports facilities authority website.
You can also pick up an application at the actual construction site and there will be future job training sessions but they haven't been scheduled yet.
