After scaling back the number of seasonal employees hired last summer because of the pandemic, they’re looking to hire between 600 and 700 people this summer. A resume isn’t required to apply, but Rockford Park District developmental specialist Jordan McDonald says he is looking for people that believe in their mission.

It's more than just a paycheck, it's an experience that the employees carry with them for life. You can make some money, and make some memories all at the same time. Build your social skills, and enjoy the outdoors, the benefits expand way beyond pay.
