The City of Dodge City Human Resources Department, along with partners from the Dodge City Family YMCA, United Wireless Arena, StandGuard Aquatics/Long Branch Lagoon, and the Dodge City Raceway Park, are hosting a job fair on April 6, from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Hoover Pavilion at 108 4th Ave.
Attendees will have the opportunity to learn about the different full-time, part-time, and seasonal positions available and discuss details of the jobs with potential supervisors.
“Each year, the City of Dodge City, as well as a few of our other local partners, seek to find qualified individuals to fill a multitude of vacant positions,” said City of Dodge City Human Resources Officer Tara Schraeder. “These positions range from seasonal level, with 12 or 26 weeks options, to regular part-time or full-time.
“Due to the obstacles last year associated with COVID-19 and not being able to hire any seasonal workers or some of our full-time positions, we’re hoping to get a jump on it for the 2021 season.”
The job fair will showcase many available positions from lifeguard, concession stand worker, scorekeeper, seasonal maintenance worker, trolley driver, and many more.
The City of Dodge City will be looking to fill current seasonal, regular part-time, and full-time vacancies from the following departments: Convention & Visitor’s Bureau, Parks & Facilities, Police Department, Public Transportation, and Public Works.
“With so many entities in Dodge City searching for seasonal workers during this time, we decided that a job fair would be a great opportunity for anyone seeking employment to attend and learn more about what is available in our community,” Schraeder said. “Whether you’re in high school and looking for a summertime job, or a teacher/sub looking for something to keep you busy until August, or even just looking for a career change, we may have the perfect opportunity for you.”
