Buena Vista, CO (PRWEB) January 10, 2014

River Runners, a whitewater rafting company with two locations on the Arkansas River in Colorado, is now accepting applications for guides, drivers, sales and grill employees to start May 2014.

“We are seeking professional individuals to fill a variety of seasonal positions at our facilities near Buena Vista and the Royal Gorge,” said Travis Hochard, general manager, River Runners.

River Runners offers an annual raft guide training in Buena Vista, Colo. for applicants who want to become a certified whitewater rafting guide, according to Hochard. He said this year’s raft guide training starts May 19, 2014 in Buena Vista, Colorado.

“First-year river guides will go through more than 100 hours of training and log more than 200 river miles before they can attempt to qualify,” Hochard explained. “You won’t make a lot of money, but you will learn a life-long skill and gain life-long friends.“

Other positions including sales, driving and grill staff, offer competitive wages and an opportunity to work in a fun environment, Hochard said.

“The Colorado rafting season is May through Labor Day with peak business mid-June to mid-August, so it is a great summer job for college kids or retirees,” Hochard said. “Plus you get all the free rafting you want.”

Interested applicants should send their cover letter, résumé and three references to rafting(at)whitewater(dot)net, according to Hochard.

“Successful applicants will be dependable, hard working, flexible and have a background in customer service”, Hochard said. “We are also looking to fill some internship positions that will focus more on marketing and social media.”

Interested applicants should review the Colorado summer job openings page on the River Runners website.
