Park Rangers

Advancement Prospects

Nearly all rangers start in entry-level positions, which means that nearly all higher level openings are filled by the promotion of current government employees. Many of these entry-level positions are seasonal with no benefits (vacation time, sick leave, medical benefits). Entry-level rangers may move into positions such as district ranger, park manager, or chief ranger, or they may become specialists in resource management. Rangers who show management skills and become park managers may move into administrative positions in the district, regional, or national headquarters.
