Internship Opportunities


Summer 2019


Great Cats World Park is now starting our interview process for the summer internship program. This is a 3-4 month Unpaid internship. School credits can be earned in most cases. Applicants need to submit a resume and current photo via e-mail to: info@greatcatsworldpark.com Once reviewed we will contact you to set up a working interview. This will be a 2-3 day process. (Housing can be provided) Some basic Requirements: - Applicants must be at least 18 years of age. - Must be able to commit to 3-4 months 4-5 days per week. - Must be able to adhere to all facility safety & operating protocols. - Must be able to memorize a script and speak to a group. - Must be willing to work in all weather conditions. - Ability to provide excellent guest service by positively interacting with guests. - Ability to perform physically demanding job duties. - Willingness to get dirty! Housing can be provided, however this is on a first come first serve basis. Qualified candidates must understand that if selected you will be held to the highest of standards. If you think you are going to come in and “Play with kitties” you need not apply. You must be willing to work hard for the animals. Internship Program Goals: To provide you with the basic working knowledge of professional animal care, as it relates to cats. Although we are specific to cats our goal is to give you the correct attitude and knowledge to work with many exotic species safely and professionally. You can receive training in the following: ~ USDA standards and regulations ~ Basic feline husbandry ~ Feline nutrition & diet preparation ~ Enrichment for exotic felines ~ Safety protocol ~ Public speaking and guest relations ~ Breeding exotic felines ~ Captive feline behavior ~ Zoonotic diseases ~ Animal health assessment ~ Enclosure design ~ Medical procedures Note: Items highlighted are privileges NOT a right. As your performance is evaluated and if adequate staffing is available to maintain the facility you may be asked to observe and/or participate. In addition: We run with a very small staff, therefore you will also learn what running day to day operations takes from working in the gift shop, horticulture, and maintenance.
