Looking for a job? Consider seeking out some great Disney World employment opportunities! There is nothing like heading to work at the happiest place on Earth each day! There are several different types of Disney employment opportunities, so the way you seek and apply for a position depends on the type of work you are looking for.
Job seekers who live in or are relocating to the Orlando area can fill out an application for hourly employment. You can search for jobs on the Disney website, and fill out an application or apply in person at the Central Casting office. Hourly jobs include ride attendants, food service workers, maintenance staff, resort staff and similar positions. Depending on your experience and requirements, you may be able to secure a position in one of the theme parks or hotels.
If you are a professional in just about any field, check out Disney’s employment career portal, located on the Disney website. Here you can search for career job openings all over the world. Disney employs artists, engineers, executives and managers for all aspects of its business, advertising and marketing people, professional support staff and more. You can search by job title or location-and learn instantly that Disney is seeking an Environmental Engineer in Paris, or an Executive Assistant in Orlando. Career applicants will need to send in a resume and cover letter to start the process.
Disney employs actors, singers, dancers, and other performers for its stage shows, parades, and park appearances. If you have ever wanted to be a real Disney Princess, then make sure you watch the Disney casting call board for information about when to show up for an interview.
Casting calls feature specific requests-they may be seeking female dancers under 5 feet tall with gymnastics abilities-so showing up if you are 5’10” and have two left feet will not likely result in a job! Read all of the details of the casting call, and attend an audition to apply. Bring along a headshot, and be prepared to sing or dance if the position requires it.
Casting calls are also the place to secure a job as a character. You will need to fit the basic body type requirements for the character to make it past the screening audition.
Disney offers internships and training programs for college students. These can be summer programs or full semesters, and students will work in an area related to their field of study. College recruitment is done through college campuses, and through different casting calls throughout the country, so keep an eye out for opportunities if you are a college student.
Working at Disney World is a wonderful, lucrative experience. Make sure you check the website often, and keep an eye out for Disney World employment opportunities in your area of expertise.
