Indoor Work? Outdoors? Ages 16-21 Apply By May 6 for Summer Jobs

Courtesy photo Pictured above is a prior group of students who participated in Gila County Summer Youth Employment.

One worked as a lifeguard at Hostetler Pool in Miami, another interned with City of Globe’s economic development director – while still others learned job skills at Gila County Public Works, and with the Health & Emergency Management Department.

Need a summer job? This is the final week to apply for temporary jobs over June-July sponsored by the Gila County Board of Supervisors. This innovative program matches local youth with a range of jobs that pay $12-per-hour, working for  county government, the city of Globe – and towns of Payson, Hayden, Miami, Star Valley, Winkelman and Young. What a great opportunity for high school juniors and seniors, those enrolled in the next college semester and young adults to explore local career avenues, acquire lifelong skills – and begin to build a network in their community! Read more, or download an application PDF  from   gilacountyaz.gov  (from the main page you’ll need to follow navigation bar clicklinks choosing: offices & departments, then ‘human resources’, then ‘employment opportunities’)

Apply soon, the deadline is May 6 for fulltime and part-time work starting June 10. Are you skilled with office programs such as MS-word, excel and PowerPoint?  Make sure to list your software skills on the application when you apply; Gila County summer jobs include comfortably air-conditioned indoor clerical positions for data entry, filing, mail processing, faxing, and copying; front office reception, and other general administrative and clerical support. Do family and friends love the creative short videos that you film, edit and post on Facebook or Instagram? List that skill, too – there just might be a Summer job that includes work as a social media intern – in fact, a short video about last year’s summer job cadre was edited and posted by one of them – and you can view the short clip on youtube (search using keywords “Gila County Summer Youth Employment 2019”). You prefer to work outside? Last year’s hires included groundskeepers to rake, prune, pull weeds and pickup trash – using tools, pruning saws, hedge and brush trimmers. Summer youth employees should be ready to help with special projects, possibly attend staff meetings. And, of course, ‘other duties as assigned.’
