There will be plenty of opportunity for those interested in becoming lifeguards
at New Jersey state parks. This season, 150 lifeguard positions will be available
at all of the state park swimming areas.
State Environmental Protection Commissioner Bob Shinn announced that the Division
of Parks and Forestry is recruiting for the positions and offering free training
"With the summer season right around the corner, many students will be eager
to find work," Shinn said. "This is a great opportunity to earn money
and to become skilled in a job that saves lives."

certification by the State Park Service. No previous experience is required.
The starting salary is $6.60 per hour.
