The West Virginia State Parks system will host an on-site and virtual job fair at Pipestem Resort State Park on May 11 to recruit people for positions.
From 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., the job fair is being hosted in partnership with the West Virginia Division of Natural Resources, Workforce West Virginia, and the Region 1 and Region 3 Workforce Development boards.
West Virginia State Parks Chief Brad Reed says summer employment in parks can lead to far bigger things.
"A summer job at a state park is such a rewarding experience and a great opportunity for folks in need of work to get into the tourism and hospitality industry," Reed said.
The open-air job fair will be located at the park visitor center near the Canyon Rim Center, which overlooks the Bluestone National Scenic River.
Pipestem is located in southern West Virginia near Princeton, West Virginia.
Those who wish to participate in the virtual job fair can register at region3wibkc.org.
Those who are unable to attend in person or online may still send an application to DNRHR@wv.gov or directly to the park at the following address:
