Apply soon, the deadline is May 10 for fulltime work starting June 7. Are you skilled with office programs such as Microsoft Word, XL and PowerPoint?  Make sure to list those software skills on the application when you apply; your Gila County summer job placement might just  be in a comfortable and  air-conditioned office, indoor clerical positions for data entry, filing, mail processing, faxing, and copying; front office reception, and other general administrative and clerical support. You prefer working outdoors? List applicable experience when you apply - there are opportunities for that. Do family and friends love the creative video shorts that you film, edit and post on Facebook or Instagram? List that skill, too – there just might be a Summer job that includes work as a social media intern – in fact, a short video about last year’s summer job cadre was edited and posted by one of the participants – and you can view the short clip on YouTube (search using keywords “Gila County Summer Youth Employment 2019”). You prefer to work outside? Last year’s hires included groundskeepers to rake, prune, pull weeds and pickup trash – using tools, pruning saws, hedge and brush trimmers. Summer youth employees should be ready to help with special projects, possibly attend staff meetings. And, of course, ‘other duties as assigned.’
