AARP Driver Safety


4. National Park Service Employee

The nitty-gritty: The National Park Service hires about 10,000 temporary and seasonal employees annually. Some possibilities: collecting fees, answering visitor questions, doling out maps and brochures, giving directions through the park and reporting potential safety hazards. Park guides or rangers give short interpretative educational programs. More rigorous work might involve maintaining hiking trails or collecting biological field samples.
The hours: Summer is typically high season.
Median Pay range: $14 to $18 an hour
Qualifications: You must be a U.S. citizen and will be subject to a security background check. A teaching résumé or public speaking skills are selling tools. Expertise in a particular field— say, botany, history or geology — can get you in the gate. Military veterans enjoy special consideration.
