I am interested in becoming a national park ranger/law enforcement, patrol. I'm mainly interested in the patrolling aspect as opposed to a naturalist. I am currently EMT-B state certified in NC, I have obtained several Tactical Rescue, lvl 1 and 2, And several other certifications along with being a firefighter. I do plan on taking BLET once the next class becomes available. Is that enough to qualify and are these jobs very slim?
Most park ranger jobs are seasonal, and I know some park rangers move from park to park and pay their own relocation expenses. But does the park service provide any type of housing for them?
Please only answer if you know, not if you think you know.
I want to be a National Park Ranger after college, so I am wondering which major would be best.

Any help on any of this would be greatly appreciated! Thanks :)
My whole life I've wanted to be a park ranger. I'm a college junior majoring in forestry. I've applied for over 20 summer jobs with the National Park Service and haven't had a single job offer. What am I doing wrong?
I'm a senior in high school, and I'm seriously considering a job with the national park service as a ranger after I've graduated from college. What would I need to major in while at college in order to pursue this? And how difficult is it to obtain a job as a ranger?
I'm interested in becoming a park ranger, but I'm also open to other possibilities that I might not have considered before.

In case it matters, I don't have a degree in forestry, geology, etc... but I do have a bachelor's degree in business.
I've graduated from high school and I don't like school very much. I've always wanted to work in the wilderness and on my career aptitude test it told me to be a park ranger, so I must be destined to work in the wild. What would I need to do to get a job at a national park?
Im some what close to getting out of high school. When I get out I would like to be a welder or a national park ranger. But I hate areas with a lot of people, like cities. I would like to live in yosemite, or some environment like that. I love being out in nature. If anyone that works in Yosemite or in an area such as deep forest, can you tell me if there is any job opportunity's for a welding job or park ranger.
I have been taking Zoloft for about four years, due to depression since childhood. I am preparing to get a degree in Forestry and would love to be a Park Ranger with the National Parks service. However, I have read that they have similar health standards to Law Enforcement and I am afraid my Zoloft prescription could keep me from being employed.
I am thinking about being a forest ranger at Everglades National Park. Can anyone tell me about this job, what do they do on a day to day, what education you need or courses you need to take and how much does it pay? Thanks!

I am 18 and will be attending the University of Arizona in the fall of 2012. I have always loved the outdoors and am interested in having a seasonal job as an interpretive park ranger at Grand Canyon National Park. As a student, I have little experience, but am wondering what steps or qualifications I would need in order to obtain a summer job as a park ranger or tour guide (preferably one where I would be able to board on site if that's possible) Thank you for your time.

I'm wanting to live and work in Yosemite National Park this upcoming summer. I absolutely love backpacking, camping, and hiking. I know there are obviously other positions, but are there any related to this where I would be in the backcountry a lot of the time?
I'm a 19 year old healthy female. I'm just a little lost on where to get started. This is truly what I want to do. I grduated high school with a 3.7 and was in the National Honor Society and I was even a girl scout froom the age of nine til I was 18. I'm sure this will help me in some way. Anyone here have good suggestions of where to go or what to do. Can a 19 year old be a park ranger?
I was dead set on becoming a California Fish and Game Warden, but I can't move 1000 miles to go to an academy.
What other California jobs are out there that involve wildlife, law enforcement, etc?
I don't want to only work in the city, that's why i'm not going for Sheriff's deputy or Police Officer. I checked out park rangers, but they seem to lack in the law enforcement part I want in my career.
I have lost my job almost a year ago and am rethinking a career path, I am curious if I am too old for this, (35yrs.).
How do I do this? I'm 18, high school graduate, by the time I would work for a national park I would have one semester of college done (about 12 credits).
This is my dream.
what about simple jobs like food service, janitorial services, or park rangers?
