Paisley Park Hosts 2-Day Job Fair

CHANHASSEN, Minn. (WCCO) — If you want to work at Paisley Park, now is your chance.

Thursday was the first of a two-day job fair to fill management, merchandise, marketing and tour guide positions.

Since Prince’s death, fans haven’t been allowed to go past the gate.

But when tours start on Oct. 6, people in Minnesota and from around the world will have unprecedented access to the singer’s estate.

On Thursday, organizers sought to hire operators, security and management to oversee the public tours.

By mid-morning, more than 150 people had showed up for interviews at the Chanhassen Dinner Theater.

The same team that runs Graceland, the home of Elvis Presley, is helping to coordinate interviews and tours.

Graceland spokesman Kevin Kern says the star’s museum has around 600,000 visitors a year.

While it’s hard to make predictions for Paisley Park, he says tickets are selling fast.

“It’s an exciting time,” Kern said. “People really get the chance to go beyond that front door…to experience Paisley Park.”

Outside Paisley Park, memorials to the Purple One have continued to grow.

    After being a radio anouncer for two decades,I feel like I grew up with Prince marketing his music, it was challenging at times and other times it was like oh my God ! Do you feel me
