Seasonal Employment in Glacier National ParkThe National Park Service is the number one employer of summer temporary positions within the Department of the Interior. Employment opportunities abound! However, competition is keen in most areas.
Recruitment for summer positions begins in December of each year and may run as late as March. Glacier hires approximately 350 summer seasonal positions in various disciplines. Not all NPS areas recruit for seasonal positions at the same time. For information on seasonal positions in other NPS areas, contact those parks directly.
The main employment season for Glacier National Park runs from Memorial Day to Labor Day. Some positions may begin earlier in the year and/or extend longer into the fall. The actual length of employment depends on the position and work location. Glacier typically does not hire temporary employees for the winter season.

Firefighter positions will be recruited through a centralized system. To apply visit www.firejobs.doi.gov. Read all instructions carefully.
