How to look for jobs at Gateway

Job announcements may open and close quickly, especially for seasonal jobs. We announce job openings via the park's Facebook and Twitter pages. But the first place to look is USAJobs.gov.

USAJOBS.gov includes a full list of permanent and seasonal employment opportunities in the federal government, including Gateway National Recreation Area. You can search in a particular department such as the Department of the Interior, an agency such as the National Park Service or a specific area such as New York City.
