Looking for a job in a theme park?
Written by Robert Niles
Many seasonal parks already have had their big job fairs for 2010, but hiring continues at the year-'round parks in Orlando and Southern California.Tweet
Universal Studios Hollywood announced that it is holding a casting call for Studio Tour Guides on Monday, April 19 from 2:00pm to 5:00pm. Universal's looking for approximately 40 guides, including ones who speak Spanish in addition to English. Parking is available in the Frankenstein parking structure and the casting call is in the USH VIP Lounge, near the entrance to the theme park. More info is available at ushjobs.com.
Walt Disney World is running an online job fair, now until Sunday, April 18. You can apply online for a variety of open positions at the resort, without having to come down in person first.
My tips for in-person theme park interviews: Cut and style your hair like the people you see working in the parks now. Then walk into the facility wearing a big smile and don't stop being friendly at any point. Even the employees whom you don't think are interviewing you might still be evaluating you. Friendliness - smiles, eye contact and clear speaking - gets you hired at theme parks.
