CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Nick Neylon joined Wyoming News Now to talk about seasonal employment opportunities. We focused some of our time on what these jobs can mean for teenagers and how some people get careers started after working a seasonal job.

Below is more information from Wyoming State Parks about these opportunities.

Looking for something other than the traditional fast food summer job? Are you the type of person that would rather work outdoors? Are looking for a job with an organization that values hard work?

The Wyoming Division of State Parks, Historic Sites, and Trails has a series of seasonal opportunities including fee collection, visitor services, maintenance at state parks, and historic sites throughout the state. These are positions are open to workers aged 16 and older.

The seasonal employment period is typically from Memorial Day to Labor Day with some positions beginning earlier in the year and/or extending longer into the fall. The actual length of employment depends on the work location and the type of job performed. Pay ranged from $9 to $14 an hour.

Some job duties for visitor services and fee positions may include greeting visitors, handling fees, answering phone calls, restocking gift shop shelves, cleaning, maintenance, and some janitorial service. Actual duties depend on the site and type of venue, i.e. state park or historic site.

Maintenance workers may perform routine building, grounds, and landscape maintenance, minor carpentry repairs, painting, restroom cleaning, litter pick-up, and customer service such as answering basic visitor questions. Again, actual duties depend on the site and type of venue.
