No, it’s not judging a bikini contest or being an ice cream taste tester, although both of those jobs have their good points.
According to Parks Canada, Canada’s Greatest Summer Job is being a video reporter in the national parks. The 32 students selected for this task will produce a series of video reports on their experiences in national parks, national historic sites and national marine conservation areas.
It’s outdoorsy, it involves travel, it’s working in film, and it’s not flipping burgers or folding t-shirts. Sounds like a pretty awesome job to me. Want it to be yours next summer? Keep an eye on the student employment opportunities offered by the parks and get ready for summer 2011.
The Parks also offer “Summer jobs that are outside the box“, and outside the shopping mall, so there are lots of ways to make your summer job seem like a summer staycation.
