If you're looking for a job, now's your chance to apply to work at the brand new Allianz Field in St. Paul.
Construction is winding down on the $150-million dollar soccer stadium that will be home to Minnesota's professional soccer team, Minnesota United FC.
The first home game is April 13 and there are hundreds of jobs to fill before then.
The team's official food and beverage partner, Delaware North Sportservice, is looking for 250 part-time workers.
"We're looking for that individual who's looking to engage in the community with Minnesota soccer fans and has great hospitality experience," said Jessica Niebeling, food and beverage manager.

Delaware North hosted a job fair at Midpointe Event Center on Saturday, where applicants could do an interview and get hired on the spot.
Open positions include supervisors, bartenders, warehouse porters and stockers, cooks, dishwashers, suite runners, restaurant servers and club attendants. Pay depends on the job but many positions have wages ranging from $12 to $20 per hour.
"Mainly just working at the stadium I think was the big selling point," said Brian Harney, who got hired at Saturday's job fair. "Everybody in Minnesota seems to love the team. All the games I've been to have been really energetic, really exciting, so I think it'll be easy to feed off of that. It'll be a lot of fun."
Delaware North says the jobs come with perks as well, including free meals and paid training.
Here's a list of upcoming job fairs:
Interested candidates are encouraged to apply online prior to attending an event.
