Disney tries to lure summer employees with class credit

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) – Disneyland is hoping that giving class credit to college students will make them the happiest interns on earth.

In the 1960s and 1970s, Disneyland didn’t even advertise summer jobs because applications flooded in from teens and college students.

But with about four-thousand jobs to fill for its upcoming summer season and workers scarce, the self-proclaimed “Happiest Place on Earth” is taking a cue from white-collar employers.

It’s offering class credit to college students for the first time in its history.

Disney recruiters plan to visit about 50 Southern California colleges and universities in the coming weeks.

Interns can earn up to six credits by working for seven months. They get paid too: between eight and ten dollars an hour for jobs in retail, rides and food service.
