South Suburban Parks and Recreation is hosting its first-ever career fair on Thursday, March 15, from 2-7 p.m. at The Inn at Hudson Gardens, 6115 S. Santa Fe Dr. in Littleton. The goal is to attract qualified candidates to fill hundreds of positions, many of which are unique to the parks and recreation industry.
Like many other employers in Denver metro’s tight labor market, South Suburban is experiencing an overall decrease in the number of teens applying for typical “first jobs,” such as working in a restaurant or lifeguarding.
The career fair will allow prospective employees of all ages the opportunity to meet with staff, learn about openings, complete an application and possibly be interviewed and receive a job offer on the spot. Job seekers should bring a resume, if they have one, and an ID.
South Suburban hopes to attract those aged 16 and up. Jobs include lifeguards, cooks, servers, park-maintenance workers and sports instructors. Not all of the positions are seasonal. South Suburban plans to hire 500 people in March and April to fill positions for the busy spring and summer seasons.

In addition to the career fair, South Suburban just launched a new Careers site that offers an enhanced experience for job seekers, complete with a welcome video from our executive director, staff testimonials, featured jobs and more.
