Want A Summer Job? Miami-Dade Wants You!

MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Looking for a summer job? Despite economic problems, staff cutbacks and the possibility of layoffs, Miami-Dade County is actually looking for summer part-timers, and the search started Monday.

The county is looking for people to work in parks and recreation, to fill jobs ranging from pool managers and lifeguards to park service aides and recreation leaders.

The search for applications began Monday, February 27th and will continue through March 23rd.

Some of the jobs, like lifeguard and pool manager, require specific training or certifications, but the county said it can help with those for people who apply early enough.

Other jobs require little or no experience, but all positions require applicants selected to pass a drug/alcohol screen and criminal background before they can be hired.

Applicants must be at least 17 years old, apply online at www.miamidade.gov/jobs and contact the park where they want to work, using the list at www.miamidade.gov/parks.

The county also has a summer job hotline at 305-755-7898
