HEIDELBERG, Germany -- The Civilian Human Resources Agency Europe Region has begun accepting applications for summer employment across Europe through May 20.

The 2012 Summer Hire program, which runs from June 18 through July 27, provides jobs in clerical, labor and child development positions.

Applicants for summer hire positions must be unmarried family members of active duty service members or DOD civilian employees, ages 14-22. The applicant must have reached their 14th birthday prior to June 21 and must not reach their 23rd birthday prior to the end of the program July 27.

“The Summer Hire program is designed to provide young people an opportunity to gain meaningful job experience and prepare for their future education and career goals,” said Clarence Acklin, from the CHRA-E director’s office, the theater-wide human resources service provider. “The summer hire program benefits both the young workers and the community.”

Online applications are available at the CHRA-E Web site. Applicants must also submit hard copies of employment documents directly to the Civilian Personnel Advisory Center that services their community.
