Update on 3000 New Seasonal Jobs

Well, it looks like DubYa made good on his promise to provide funding for 3,000 new Park Ranger jobs in 2008 and Congress went along with it.  These will be mostly seasonal positions and will extend beyond the Park Ranger ranks to include Visitor Use Assistants, Park Guides, Bio Techs and Maintenance Workers.

 These jobs are being announced on USAJobs and, with the exception of the Maintenance Worker positions, applications are being rated and ranked by a central office in Denver.  They are using an electronic questionnaire instead of KSAs (Hallelujah!  Some progress, at last.)   Here’s a link to application instructions.   

The NPS has also updated their seasonal employment webpage.  It is an improvement but still pretty vague.
