The Vikings are set to kick off their 2021 season this weekend, and you could totally get paid to watch the team in person this fall.

If you're a huge Minnesota Vikings fan, or even if you could use a little extra cash, this might be the opportunity you've been looking for. You could get paid to watch the purple and gold this season-- by working at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis!

U.S. Bank Stadium says it requires about 3,000 employees (Team Members, as its website says) working at the stadium to put on a Minnesota Vikings game, concert or other big event or activity. They're looking to hire 500 of those positions right now. And, yes, perks include 15-20 events per year, free parking, free meals and "exclusive employee benefits."

So, yeah, even though you might be working while the game is going on, you still might be able to catch a glimpse of Kirk Cousins as he launches a touchdown pass to Justin Jefferson sometime this season.

If you're interested, they're holding a Hiring Fair Wednesday, September 8th from 3 to 6:30 pm, Located at U.S. Bank Stadium's NW Legacy Gates (401 Chicago Ave South in Minneapolis.) If you can't make that, the stadium site says flexible interview options are also available through virtual interviews, as well.

Job openings include guest experience representatives, cashiers, cooks, warehouse workers, food service stand workers, retail operations and event security.

Now while working at U.S. Bank Stadium might be a cool side hustle, it's probably not going to make you rich. But one of THESE jobs might-- because they're the highest paying jobs in Minnesota. Keep scrolling to check them out!
