Interested in a seasonal job? If you can't find a year round job, it's time to start hunting for spring/summer/fall seasonal jobs. Organizations like Six Flags/Great Adventure, the largest seasonal employer in New Jersey, has over 4,000 positions available for the 2013 season, including 200 internships. And these aren't just jobs for kids. These jobs for people of all ages and interests.
In addition, there will be summer performance auditions on February 2 and 10 at the Showcase Theater. Energetic hosts, entertainers, actors, technicians, dancers, and specialty performers are invited to audition. Be prepared to showcase your talents on site on those dates.
Quote from the Six Flags New Jersey web site:
"Whether you want to be a performer, character, ride operator, games attendant, water aide, or cleaning crew member, you’re going to be part of a wonderful team with exciting benefits. For example, 2013 crew members will be among the first people to participate in our intense Safari Off Road Adventure, and water park employees will be the first to operate the all-new splashy Big Wave Racer. Other perks include competitive wages, valuable experience, incentive bonuses, flexible scheduling, free park admission, in-park discounts, exclusive employee events, reward programs, scholarships, and the opportunity to make new and lifelong friends. You’ll be surrounded by friends, food, and fun – all while getting paid."
So if you have a smile and like the outdoors, go to the Six Flags web site and apply online prior to the job fair dates and then get there bright and early for the job fairs. Take the time to browse through the site if you aren't familiar with Great Adventure's rides, water park and entertainment offerings so you can sound knowledgeable during your interview. Good luck! See you there this summer!
