GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. Seasonal jobs are in high demand and employers around town have already started their interview and hiring processes for the end of the school year.
Colorado National Monument officials have been hard at work since December to fill 40 positions for the summer. Seasonal hires make up a huge part of the staff as June, July and August are their busiest months with visitors and there's a wide variety of employment opportunities.
"Education and interpretive staffs that lead programs and hikes of course law enforcement staff fee collection at the entrance stations," Ranger Nick Myers.
The monument isn't the only place hiring. Grand Junction Parks and Recreation worked through hundreds of applications and hired more than 100 people with many tending to the three pools run by Parks and Recreation.
"We'll hire about 80 people to be lifeguards, swim instructors as well as fill in at the front desk," Tina Ross, Parks and Recreation.
Even though there aren't any current job openings, Ross said they are always accepting applications.
