Tuscaloosa County Commission and PARA Announce Job Openings for High School Students

The Tuscaloosa County Commission and PARA have joined forces to provide summer jobs for Tuscaloosa City and Tuscaloosa County high school students. To be eligible, students must be ages 16-21, currently enrolled in high school, a 2017 high school graduate, or 2nd year college student. Each selected applicant will be competing against two other applicants during the interview process. Students should be prepared to present themselves professionally and do a great job if hired. Several of last year's students were invited back to work again last summer. 

The County Commission along with the support of its department heads will be providing 10 jobs. Those interested in working for Tuscaloosa County must fill out an application at the Personnel Office at the Tuscaloosa County Courthouse between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.

The County Commission has provided additional funding for approximately 40 jobs through the Park and Recreation Authority (PARA). Those interested in being employed by PARA must report to PARA's downtown office for applications. 

The application process will close at 4 p.m. on Friday, May 19, 2017 or when the numbers reach three times the number of available jobs.
