Get Paid to Play with Fairfax County Parks Summer Jobs

The Fairfax County Park Authority (FCPA) will host a Virtual Summer Job Fair in January to start the hiring process for its Rec-PAC summer camp program and the Water Mine Family Swimmin’ Hole at Lake Fairfax Park.

This interactive information session for job seekers will take place via Microsoft Teams on Thursday, January 21, 2021, from 2 to 3:30 p.m. Learn what it’s like to be a Rec-PAC leader or supervisor. Get details on working at the Water Mine as a lifeguard, cashier, maintenance or leadership team member. Attendees will hear from Rec-PAC program manager, Mike Bonneville, Water Mine Manager Eric Nielsen, Human Resources staff, and current staff from both Rec-PAC and the Water Mine. Attendees will be encouraged to turn on their mic or write in the chat.

Pay for these summer jobs is competitive, starting at $10.40 per hour for lifeguards, $11.43 per hour for Rec-PAC leaders, and $13.06 for Rec-PAC Supervisors.

During and after the information session, attendees will be able to apply for positions that interest them and will be contacted later for an interview. In addition to discussing job duties, the session will provide information about COVID-19 precautions and the onboarding process. Hiring begins in January and will continue until the more than 450 positions are filled.
