NBC NATIONAL NEWS — When the Super Bowl rolls into town, you can expect tailgaters, stick-to-your-ribs food, cheering crowds and memorable plays, but for many Hoosiers, the big game means jobs.
There are the jobs directly related to the game.
Then there are those that might not come to mind, like brand ambassador.
That involves getting paid to go to the hottest parties in town
"Not just a pretty face but girls with great personality that can be the life of the party who can step in and be comfortable with being around celebrities," says Shayan Habib of PUSH Marketing.
PUSH plans on hiring 200 brand ambassadors for many of the A-list shindigs that will accompany the game.
If modeling is not your thing, you can study to be a bartender and make big time cash during the Super Bowl.
"A lot of bartenders can make in one or two nights what a high paying person makes in a week. I'm talking a doctor, an attorney. You would be amazed," said Richard Devlin, Midwest Bartenders School.
With all the parties and special events, there aren't enough bartenders to go around right now, which has Midwest Bartenders School hopping.
"It's been booming not only with the influx of students but the influx of jobs needed," said Devlin.
That's great news to Ryan Smith, who is looking at the Super Bowl as an opportunity to start over.
"I'm recently unemployed and looking for a new exciting career path and this would be a good chance to get my feet in the water," said Smith.
At the Villa Inn, which operates several bed and breakfasts, a restaurant and a spa, they are in the process of increasing their staff by 35 percent with housekeepers, servers and massage therapists.
The best part? Those jobs are permanent.
