Parks and Public Lands
There is a wide range of jobs on parks and public lands in this country, but their numbers depend on the economy and the priorities of Congress and the president. The greatest difficulty in getting jobs in this field, however, is the stiff competition for them. Although most jobs in parks and public lands are not very high paying, they are quite secure and are considered very desirable by people who enjoy working outdoors or with the various elements of the natural world. The best future opportunities in public lands may come in the areas of environmental education, computer specialization, and internal resource or information management.
