The Long Beach Department of Parks, Recreation, and Marine will host two job fairs next month, giving applicants a chance to apply for positions and meet with agency staff and supervisors.

According to the city, the first job fair will be held Feb. 4 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Houghton Park, 6301 Myrtle Ave. The second is scheduled for Feb. 25 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at McBride Park, 1550 Martin Luther King Jr. Ave.

“This job fair is a great opportunity for those seeking employment to meet our parks department staff and leadership and learn more about our recreation programs,” Mayor Rex Richardson said in a statement. “This is just one of many employment opportunities offered across our city departments.”

According to the city, applicants will receive information on PRM programs such as day camps, youth sports, older adult programs, teen programs, mobile recreation, and virtual recreation — programs that are currently hiring or will start hiring soon within the Community Recreation Services Bureau.

“PRM provides leisure programs and services to residents and visitors, which improve quality of life in Long Beach,” according to the city. “…Those interested in job opportunities are encouraged to come by and meet PRM supervisors and staff and learn what a day in the life of a Long Beach recreation leader is like.”

More information about the job fairs is available at LBParks.org.
