    Cool Job For MTBR

    Wouldn't it be cool to have a mountain biker working in the planning dept of the National Park Service?

    Lakewood area MTBers...need a job?

    Yeah... I applied for a senior position in the CO office of BLM. Didn't get it, though.

    Is it just me or did they somehow manage to over complicate the somewhat simple application process that most businesses use?
    A trail that’s too difficult wouldn’t exist because it’d never be used. But, trails can exist that’re too difficult for you.

    I will apply. Almost made it on board with the Dept of the Interior. I am a member of the American Planning Association and mtb riding/racing is a big part of my life. You could call me a crazy liberal cycle advocate. Wish me luck.

    I'd prefer just a "cycling advocate" get the job. No need for more crazy liberals or conservatives in positions of power. There are enough there already.

    I agree with Nick. This is one screwed up announcement and application. Our gooberment is f'ed up beyond repair. What is the pay for a G12?

    Why can't the announcement be:

    Job Description: Like to work in an outdoor setting.

    Job Requirements: Have some intelligence and manage our parks correctly.

    I suppose it's worth it in the long run. After all, you'll probably have a job for life.

    By the way, Vets get preferential consideration. I like that! They deserve it.

    Okay, I take it back. Not so much liberal or conservative. Like Schnauzer said, our government is quite messed up right now. My bet is that this application will probably end up in a giant bureaucratic database where it will become a forgotten statistic.

    But what the heck, almost done with the app.

    What? The government doing something in an inefficient manner? Nonsense.

    Just to apply for a govt job requires skills that can result in a better job somewhere else.
