    If you are going to be in/near a city, I would try for a Parks & Recreation job. Just do a search for it on the internet. Along the east coast, maybe west also, I'm not sure though, there are a lot of 'State Forests'...if they border the ocean, they'll have guard jobs also.

    Your local careers centre (either at school, college or town) will have stacks of info on this, pop along for a free (usually anyhow) consultation.

    If you don't know where your nearest one is call:
    Careers Services National Association
    Careers centres differ around the country in which services they provide to people. Depending on which company is in charge of your area, The advice may be free to everyone or restricted to certain groups of people.

    There used to be some American and Canadian groups who came to speak to us at college. Baring in mind this was nearly 3 years ago okay it might be a bit out of date. But there was definately one called Bunac i think?? Might need to check that one.
