    Former Employee - Interpretive Park Ranger in Akron, OH

    I worked at National Park Service part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I worked as a seasonal Interpretive Park Ranger. This position provided me with opportunities to explore beautiful places and gain excellent costumer service skills. Became a well rounded employee who was able to manage many tasks from leading a hike on the fly, to presenting school programs on a train excursion through the park, to managing the daily operations at visitor centers. Worked with some amazing people.

    Cons

    Very limited full-time opportunities. Most positions with NPS are seasonal. Also, you will need to be willing to move around, which was fine when I was younger. Now as I am beginning to find the place where I want to be, moving out of the state is not an option.
