The snow on this tennis court at Knoch Park, along with the other facilities in town, will soon melt, serving up a slew of new summer jobs.
During the summer months, the Park District triples their workforce, adding nearly 400 employees through temporary jobs and internships.
“Summer jobs we have quite a few, especially at Centennial Beach because we hire not only lifeguards and bathhouse attendants, we also hire staff in our grill operations. So, we are actually starting to hire for those positions now and were accepting applications right now,” said Katie Sepe, Director of Human Resources with the Naperville Park District.
You can get a rundown of the open jobs on the city’s website, which accepts applicants as young as 14.
Most of these opportunities will last the duration of the summer, but you may have the chance to stay on board longer.
“We do like to try and keep employees in the family if you will, so if they are working at Centennial Beach, and they go to school locally, or they have graduated but they haven’t found that career type position, they do have the opportunity to move into a full time position when they become available,” said Sepe.
Another good option working for the City.
Recently, Council approved the hire of up to 42 temporary or seasonal employees to join the team for the summer months, just in time for the added activities around the city.
“We have our transportation, engineering development department, they seek about 12 interns, ranged from people doing traffic counts for neighborhood traffic studies to code enforcement,” said Linda LaCloche, Communications Manager for the City of Naperville. “Also with our Public Works Department, they are looking to hire between 14 and 17 temporary workers to help with special events throughout the summer.”
The City also posts their open positions and compensation information online, but these jobs aren’t just for anyone.
“We look for people who are customer service oriented, so we say our motto is “great service all the time,” so that’s what were looking for people to have,” said LaCloche. “Positive attitudes and come into these positions with the willingness to learn, and to get the most out of the position and help the community the most they can during that time.”
No matter where you’re looking to clock in for cash this summer, the time to act is now!
The Park District and the City remind applicants to check their websites often as job postings are always being updated. Those can be found at napervilleparks.org and Naperville.il.us.
