Finding Your Next Park & Rec Employee is Easy

By Morgan Rothermel | Posted on May 18, 2015

You’re busy. You have programs to run, paperwork to fill out, a budget to keep track of, staff to assist, oh and you need to fill that empty desk in the corner of the office. Hiring someone can take a lot of time, energy and resources but it doesn’t have to if you have one simple tool.

Using an online Career Center can simplify and streamline the hiring process for you. How? Because online Career Centers are the go-to resource for many job seekers since they are a one-stop shop. Meaning, because jobs in their profession are conveniently located in one spot and there are resources for career development, career advice and so much more, job seekers turn to online Career Centers to make their job hunt easier. 

For example, the NRPA Career Center is one of our most viewed webpages among our site with 16 million page views since its inception. That’s a lot of eyes on posted jobs. But there are also great resources for you to check out to make the hiring process easier on you! We have tools such as sample job descriptions, background screening information and our new Executive Recruitment Concierge service. (Tip: make sure you’re checking the Career Center out regularly because we are constantly adding new features!)

We’ve created this handy infographic so that you can see how the NRPA Career Center can be a resource for you when you have to hire.



But, you don’t have to just take our word for it. We talked to two frequent users of the Career Center and they had this to say:

Thank you to the NRPA Career Center for creating an extremely easy-to-use and efficient system to post job vacancies. The ease of use allows me to quickly input my information — saving time for other projects. Your website is easy to navigate and appealing to the eye — not only to employers, but employment seekers. I feel that is why it is so successful and heavily used. Thanks again.” - Lydia Delgros, HR Program Assistant, Loudoun County Government, Leesburg, VA

"At MWR Kings Bay, we have seen significant results in our job postings through the Career Center. Not only has our number of applicants gone up, but the quality of the applicants is noticeably better. There is so much that this national job posting has allowed us to do from the resume access feature to the statistical data such as number of views and application clicks. We have made it a standard within our organization to post full-time jobs in the Career Center." - Bo Hutchens, CPRP, Recreation & Parks Director, Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay, GA


So, don’t make the hiring process any harder than it needs to be. We provide the NRPA Career Center as a tool for you to use so you can attract qualified professionals to your agency without spending a ton of time and resources.
