If getting paid while others waste away in Margaritaville sounds appealing to you, the new resort in Kissimmee is looking for "parrotheads" to join the opening team.

The new Jimmy Buffett-themed resort, which which is set to open in early 2019, will host a two-day job fair on site at 8011 Fins Up Circle, Kissimmee, Nov. 14 and 15 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The resort is looking to hire employees for supervisory and front-line positions such as front desk, housekeeping, servers and more.

The $750 million resort was announced back in November of 2015 and when finished will span over 300 acres. The space, which will open in phases, will include a water-taxi system, 1,000 "Margaritaville-inspired" vacation homes, and a 187-room hotel.

Also featured will be a variety of restaurants and retail shops, a 12-acre water park and a resort-wide water taxi system, similar to the one at Universal Orlando.
