Quit your office job and work at Coney island this summer

by -
Boardie jobs mean you’ll never be board. Via NYC & Company.

Want a back pocket-full of Wet Hot American Summer-ish stories to regale your friends with? Well, here’s your chance, gang. Replace Camp Firewood with the hot little ticket that is Coney Island, and you’ve got yourself a summer job à la Adventureland—minus the awkwardness that is Kristen Stewart’s and Jesse Eisenberg’s forced on-screen chemistry, and plus all the hot dogs.

Today and tomorrow, you can check out a huge job fair with more than 500 spots looking to be filled: candidates will be screened for positions as ride operators, game operators and more at Luna Park, Deno’s Wonder Wheel Amusement Park, (run, don’t walk) Nathan’s Famous and El Dorado Auto Skooter. Living out your boardie dreams is always a good time, but this year, with the hot to trot amphitheater—a 5,000-seat concert, comedy, and “other” venue—opening in July, the good times will definitely be wild river flowin’.

The Alliance for Coney Island is in its seventh year of job screening events aimed at interested locals. The two-day event focuses on placing more than 500 people into positions within Coney’s amusement district.

Tomorrow and Friday, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. they’ll be hiring for ride and game operators, line and prep cooks, dishwashers, servers, cashiers and positions in maintenance and park and food services are available. Did I mention they have freakin’ gelato on the boardwalk? Gel-a-to.

So, if you’re a “courteous, reliable and enthusiastic individual with a flexible schedule” or just awake, capable, and in need of some summer money, head over to MCU Park at 1904 Surf Avenue and Steeplechase your dreams.
