It may be winter right now, but if you are hoping to find summer employment, now is the time to start planning. 

Kings Island is hosting a job fair Saturday, January 19, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. to fill more than 5,000 seasonal positions for the 2019 season. The job fair will be held at the park in the Human Resources building. 

A range of job opportunities are available at the park, which begins its 48th season in April. Associates are needed in all areas of park operation.

These areas include admissions, entertainment, food and beverage, games, guest services, human resources, lifeguards, merchandise, park services, rides, security and warehouse.

Individuals 16 or older are encouraged to attend. 

Working at Kings Island will help high school and college students develop essential and transferable skills to help build their resume for the future, including communications skills, interpersonal skills and work ethic.

It’s not just high school and college students who benefit from working at Kings Island — jobs are open to anyone and with flexible scheduling, it's a good fit for adults looking to supplement their income and retirees.

A summer job at Kings Island may even provide opportunities that might turn into a full-time year-round job. Many of the park's full-time staff began their career as a seasonal associate at Kings Island. 

Apply online in advance at kifun.jobs, then come to the job fair for an interview.
