check out the career center. Keep these
things in mind: The postings are national
and will therefore attract many applicants.
These are highly competitive positions, so
don't be discouraged if you do not hear
back from agencies. If they posted a job
nationally, they are casting a large net, so
make sure you apply for multiple jobs.
Also, targeting your search to a certain region using the NRPA career center could become frustrating. Since some
agencies have neither the desire nor the
budget to post a job nationally, NRPA provides a great resource for job seekers
and posters to localize their search. The
" Contact and Share " tab on NRPA's main
page will take you to a fantastic resource
for job searches and general professional development and networking. The National and State Affi liates page provides
a link (and contact information) to every
state's professional membership society.
Although these are separate membership groups and may at some point require you to join, most provide initial free

access to their job boards. This allows
you to pick a specific states and focus on
their postings only.
Federal agencies and nonprofits can
also get your career started in parks and
recreation. However, this route is so specialized, it calls for a separate column.
These aren't your only job search
options: Talk with professors, alumni
networks, and former classmates and
colleagues. Solid interview skills, good
references, and a succinct resume are
essential, and they will be covered in future columns.
Until then, happy job hunting.
