Seasonal & Part-Time Interpreters
Each spring/summer Georgia State Parks and Historic Sites hires seasonal and part-time interpreters to conduct interpretive programs and recreational activities for park visitors. A seasonal interpreter's responsibilities include leading hikes or tours, conducting nature programs and campfire programs, leading games and other recreational activities and conducting a Junior Ranger Day Camp for children.
Part-time interpreters conduct interpretive programs and recreational programs as well as planning and coordinating special events and working with visiting school groups. Part-time positions are year-round with fewer work hours during the winter months.
All new interpreters are required to attend a three-day orientation. Lodging and meals are provided at the three-day training.
The pay rate for seasonal and part-time interpretive staff is $9–$10/hour. Some sites have free housing available at the park—refer to the availability chart.
A completed college degree is not required. Areas of study that would be most appropriate include Outdoor Recreation and Interpretation, Environmental Education, Natural Resources, Biology/Ecology, History or other related field. Previous experience in a related field is desired or experience
in public relations, customer service and public speaking.
Applicants must have strong communication skills and be able to work independently.
