Work With Us

Being a part of a community, part of Jemez,|I felt like I needed to give to my community
and I love what I do.
By being in service to Yosemite, I'm in service|to the United States.
But I'm also, because it's a World Heritage|Site, I'm in service to the world.
And I think by giving, you receive far more|in return.
I actually went to school online, working|on my Master's.
So I worked full-time and went to school full-time.
My manager at the time was like, I see a drive|in you and it's whatever you want to do.
I hired in out of college and I took a chance,|took the job and I'm still here 20 years later.
So it's worth the risk.
Don't let any opportunity pass you by.
I wake up wondering like, what is my first|email going to be and what am I going to have
to figure out in order to solve that problem.
There's always gonna be a problem that shows|up and that's exciting to me.
I love problem-solving.
My work challenges me all of the time.
I am learning new skills.
Right now, I'm doing computer modeling, which|is something I never thought I would have
ventured into but, it is so much fun.
People understand that our jobs are tough.
We have a lot to do and we work hard when|we do it.
So there's an appreciation of times to recharge|and relax and we've got a great spot to do it.
What's the best part of your job?
All of it!
I honestly love working for this park and|for the Park Service so much.
Like, I seriously can't think of anything|else that I want to do.
I really love, I love my work and I love my|job.
To me that's a big factor if you have to wake|up every single day and enjoy the job that
you have to go and do.
And I really like the work.
I think everybody in the HR office would agree|that one of the most fun things is offering
jobs to people, because they get so excited.
That's what gets me out of bed every day.
It's really thinking about who will make a|difference, who can contribute to the work
that I'm doing and how do we work or build|something together and move it forward.
I never thought that working for the government|would be such an adventure, would be so enjoyable,
that I would almost do it for free.
