Living & Working in Great Places
Thanks for being here! The six of us at CoolWorks welcome you and wish you success in finding your Jobs in Great Places®!
I was wondering when is the best time to apply for Summer jobs? I am very active on the coolworks page however, I am not getting a sure answer, I assume every company is different. Please give me advice and your experiences as well. This is very new and exciting to me, I'm trying to do my research and trying be smart about everything while job hunting.
I am aware of this page- https://www.coolworks.com/resources/the-best-time-to-apply/
However, I was confused as to when to apply, I would say as early as October?
Any other information would be great as well, thanks in advance.
When to apply depends a lot on where you want to apply. There are some places that begin to look for the next year as soon as the current year is over.
Most companies, however, are like what the linked page says: January through March is generally the busiest recruiting window for summer opportunities.
So, yes, there will be some as early as October. There will be some as late as opening. There will be some mid-season.
I would always start applying December 1.
I've been doing resort work for years and that seems
like a good time to hit your best picks.
