“Wild” summer employment for adults and teens is available at the Santa Barbara Zoo, including the award-winning Guest Experience Specialist (GES) program, as well as Special Events Hosts, Zoo Camp Counselors, Education Program Instructors, Train Conductors, and performers for the Zoo’s shows.

Intended to be a “first job” for youth, GES positions are available to those as young as 14 who rotate between jobs in three areas: guest services, the restaurants and retail stores. In addition to their job duties, participants are also introduced to work ethics and basic skills, such as how to provide excellent customer service, write a resume or be in a job interview.

Information about volunteer opportunities will also be at the Job Fair, including Zoo Camp Counselor in Training for ages 13 to 17. Several close-up Animal Encounters will also take place.

No reservations or appointments are necessary. Parking is free for participants, who should check-in at the front gate. For more information and to download a application, visit or contact Corinne Santini at 962-5339 ext. 108 or
