More than 600 positions will be available for the Minnesota State Fair, which runs Aug. 24 to September 4. And after the success of last year's first job fair they are doing it again.

The place to go from 4-8PM Wednesday is to the Progress Center, Randall Avenue and Cosgrove Street, at the fairgrounds in St. Paul. The applicant line will begin forming at 3PM. Anyone in line by 7:45PM will be able to participate. At the Job Fair, you can complete a registration form, meet with a State Fair representative and, if your skills and experience match an open position, a fair department or vendor will interview you on the spot. Resumes are not required but will be accepted. Shifts during the State Fair are typically 6-12 hours long. Wages for most positions range from $9.50 to $10 per hour.
