Breaks Interstate Park will host a job fair on Saturday, March 1 for those interested in seasonal employment at the park this summer.
Superintendent Austin Bradley said there would be a wide variety of seasonal positions available this year, with some being filled as early as March.
“The quality of our visitors’ experience depends heavily upon the quality of our staff,” said Bradley, “We have been fortunate in years past to have excellent participation from the local workforce, and we invite anyone who is interested and willing to work to attend our job fair.”
Available positions include: Contact Rangers; Restaurant Servers, Hostesses, and Cooks; Housekeepers; Reservations Desk employees; and Pool Concession staff and lifeguards. Contact Rangers are the most diverse employees at the park, and those chosen to fill the positions will rotate among the Camp Store, Visitor Center/Museum, Front Gate, Pedal Boats, and Water Park entrance.
The Job Fair will be held at the Rhododendron Conference Center and will begin at 10 am. Interested applicants should meet in the Dickenson Room for an introduction and informational session before breaking off into groups depending on their work interests. Park division heads and managers will be available to offer detailed insight into job positions and to answer any questions. Those interested will have the opportunity to fill out job applications at the job fair.
Breaks Interstate Park is located on the Kentucky - Virginia border and is accessed by State Route 80. Commissioned by the U.S. Congress in 1954, it encompasses more than 4,600 acres and is one of only two interstate parks in the United States.
