Thanks for being here! The six of us at CoolWorks welcome you and wish you success in finding your Jobs in Great Places®!

So I already see some people getting job offers for next summer. I thought it would be best if I wait till after the holidays and get my apps in early Jan. Or should I start now?? I figured if I apply to early I will get at the bottom of a pile and lost. But I sure do want to beat the rush and get noticed right away. Any advice??? If matters I mostly likely stay in Alaska and work at a resort or restaurant in the Kenai area.


PS I attached a nice pic from a friend here in Alaska far north arctic tundra

do it now most companys start hired after the 1st of jan
i applied in October last year, and heard back before Christmas - meanwhile everyone else I worked with (who applied in January) didn't hear back until March. You should definitely put in your app now, and then email or call the company a week later to let them know you put your app in early. I did that last year, and she said she would pull it aside and make sure to look at mine first.

I actually applied in September for Yellowstone (Xanterra) again for Summer 2010 because the HR woman told me that they look at the earlier applications before the new ones. I think it would be best to apply earlier but January is still pretty early so I am not really sure. Hope I helped!
I'd start now.... another point is, if you're earlier to get looked at, then you're not facing burnt-out-on-stacks-of-apps HR people ;)
I'm also considering working next winter at Coldfoot Camp. How was it? Did you leave because it wasn't good, or what?
