Work for county parks and get a nice bonus

Monday, May 23, 2022 by Tai Moses

Need a summer job or know someone who does? Travis County Parks is looking for people to work through the summer season. Available jobs include “staffing a fee booth, collecting gate receipts, distributing park permits, participating in park tours and programs, and assisting with the opening and closing of their assigned park.” To sweeten the deal, seasonal staff who are hired by June 3 and remain in their jobs through July 4 are eligible for a $600 incentive. And if you continue working through Sept. 5, you’ll get an additional $600 bonus, for a total of $1,200. As county parks chief Charles Bergh said in a news release: “Seasonal staff are the face of our Travis County Parks. They are the first to greet our guests and the last to wave goodbye. If you are someone who enjoys the outdoors and is looking to earn some valuable experience and some additional money, Travis County Parks has a place for you.” More info on job opportunities here.
