New Jersey has some of the best haunted attractions in the country and if you enjoy getting dressed up and scaring people for fun, some of these haunts are looking to hire you.

You might still be in summer mode — but the Halloween season is quickly approaching and while you’re soaking up the sun on the beach, haunts are working night and day to put everything together and to make their show the scariest in the state.

Part of that is hiring talented actors and makeup artists to complete their attraction.

This is the perfect opportunity for you if you are looking for seasonal work and are willing to dress up, dress like a scary clown (that’s the scariest thing at the top of my list), or run around an open field with a chainsaw.

New Jersey is full of haunts and some of the scariest ones are put on right here in the Garden State.

Brighton Asylum was named the scariest haunted attraction in New Jersey. It’s a massive walk-through attraction with live actors and Hollywood-quality special effects.

Their trailer alone will give you goosebumps.

Auditions and the hiring process for these haunts are taking place right now and some of them are not only looking for actors, but the people who make it all happen: makeup artists.

Some are also looking to fill other positions like ticket takers and security.

It’s the perfect job if you’re looking for something temporary.
