Long Beach, CA – The City of Long Beach Department of Parks, Recreation and Marine (PRM) has planned a series of job fairs to share information on current and upcoming job openings for part-time, non-career positions. Job seekers interested in learning more about these employment opportunities are encouraged to attend.

“These job fairs are a great resource for those seeking employment to learn more about our City’s Recreation Programs,” said Mayor Rex Richardson. “This is just one of many employment opportunities offered across our City departments.”

PRM Community Recreation Services Bureau staff will provide information on a wide range of recreation programs that are currently hiring or will start hiring in the near future, including Aquatics, Day Camps, Youth Sports, Older Adults, Teens, Mobile Recreation and Virtual Recreation. Folks are encouraged to come by and meet supervisors and current staff and learn what a day in the life of a Long Beach Recreation Leader is like. Participants are encouraged to view more information about the current open positions and are welcome to apply on the Job Opportunities webpage at LBParks.org.

Two Information Only Job Fairs will be held on Saturday, Nov. 11, 2023, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at McBride Park (1550 Martin Luther King Jr. Ave.) and Tuesday, Dec. 5 at El Dorado Park West (2800 N. Studebaker Rd.) from 6 to 8 p.m., where participants can learn about current and upcoming employment opportunities.

A third job fair will be held on Saturday, Jan. 20, 2024, at the Doris Topsy-Elvord Community Center Houghton Park (6301 Myrtle Ave.) where, in addition to the informational component, attendees can apply to currently open positions and may have the opportunity to participate in interviews onsite.
