By Ana Romero, Recreation Manager
During my college years, I worked as an arts and crafts program aide at a community center. The experience introduced me to job etiquette, customer service, and creativity — skills I’ve used throughout my career.
Most successful employees have had at least one part-time job before starting their full-time careers. In addition to earning a paycheck, you learn valuable organizational and work skills, along with how to work with a team, manage your time, and budget.
The City of College Station offers similar opportunities. Part-time summer jobs with the Parks and Recreation Department include recreation assistants for our youth programs, lifeguards for our pools, water safety instructors to teach swim lessons, swim coaches for our Tsunami Swim Team, and much more.
Our Part-Time Job Fair is Wednesday, March 4 from 4:30-6:30 p.m. at the Lincoln Recreation Center. You can visit information booths, enjoy activities, meet supervisors, and complete an application. You might even get an on-site interview, so bring your resume and dress to impress.
Get your game face on, and we’ll see you there. Through our summer programs, you may even discover a career path!
