SCA Intern positions advertised

Recruitment and hiring for summer internship positions through SCA has begun! So far we've advertised five positions at the park:

  • Natural Resources Planning, dates TBD

  • Visitor Services Intern (Paradise), 5/27-8/19

  • Visitor Services Intern (Sunrise), 5/27-8/19

  • Backcountry Intern, 6/15-9/7

  • Mount Rainier Recovery Corps, 5/15-10/1 (8-12 positions, hiring now!)

We're also recruiting for at least two High School crews lasting two to four weeks each. Discussions are continuing within the park about other SCA positions, including curation, restoration planning, revegetation documentation, education, and exotics/seed collection crews, among others. For a complete list, including opportunities to apply online, search the internship database for the key word "Rainier" on SCA's website.

Note also that the Geological Society of America has advertised two Geologist-in-Parks positions on our behalf. These specialized individuals will work for 12-week terms as interpreters at Sunrise and Paradise. Applications for these positions are due February 1. Details can be found on the Geological Society's website.
