Dozens of people lined up looking for work Thursday at the Quincy Park District's job fair.
About 150 seasonal positions need to be filled, ranging from lifeguards, to concession stand workers, to batting cage operators.
And it wasn't just high school teens who were applying. College students, college graduates, and even some older adults were looking for an interview, any chance at landing a job.
"Being a college student you go through a lot money dealing with finances and stuff, being on your own. So I was looking at possibly picking up another job and the park district is so laid back and very flexible, so I figured it would be the best one," said Bailey Gengenbacher.
Ethan Siebers is a recent college graduate who was looking for something new.
"I'm substituting for Quincy Public Schools and I'm looking for something to do in the summer. It's hard, because I know I'm getting a paycheck for substituting but when it comes time for the summer, I really don't know where my money is going to be coming from. So it's important to have something lined up," said Siebers.
The park district is still accepting applications. For more information, go to www.quincyparkdistrict.com or call 223-7703.
