More Lifeguards needed for Austin pools
We mentioned on an earlier post that the City of Austin needs more lifeguards for its summer pool hours. More guards are still needed, according to this article in today's Austin American-Statesman. It's good work and pays well. Check out today's job fair!

As Austin city workers prepare for expanded public pool hours this summer, an odd sort of shortage has emerged: They just can’t find enough teenagers who want to wear a bathing suit to work.
This year, the parks department needs more summer lifeguards than ever — up to 750 — after the city extended hours and days that city pools will open. It has filled half of those spots.
