BAR HARBOR, MAINE – In partnership with Mount Desert Island Adult Education and Ellsworth Adult and Community Education, Acadia National Park will host seven Federal Resume Workshops this summer and fall. Applying for a Federal job is different than applying to jobs in nearly every other industry. These free Federal Resume Workshops will provide prospective seasonal employees with the tools to successfully submit a job application to Acadia National Park.

The power of place is immediately evident to Acadia National Park visitors. What isn’t necessarily apparent is how much the National Park Service relies on seasonal employees to make it possible for visitors from all over the world to have a safe and enjoyable experience. Acadia National Park hires more than 100 seasonal employees each year in jobs that have great potential for developing into exciting careers.

“Working at Acadia is more than just a job,” said Superintendent Kevin Schneider. “Every day, the things you check off your to-do list make a lasting impact. You make it possible for future generations to appreciate the power of Acadia.”

Registration is required to attend the Federal Resume Workshops, which will be held at the following dates and times:

  • Tuesday, August 29, 2023, 6-8pm (in person and online, Ellsworth)
  • Wednesday, September 13, 2023, 5-7pm (in person, Mount Desert Island)
