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®!
Am really enjoying and learning a lot from this CoolWorks site. I am considering seasonal work - this year if it works out, but lots of questions. What did those of you who had houses do with yours while you were gone? What about health insurance? I'm widowed, mid-50's, working full-time right now, but don't have to. Planning a trip to AK this summer, but really considering going the seasonal work route. Suggestions on picking a first experience?
I did my first paid job end of the season at Yellowstone. They do look for people just the last 2 months to fill in for those that leave early. I worked at the Campground and have left my house for sale and will be living in my RV. I have neighbors that watch it and am waiting for my buyer to sell their farm.
Health insurance should cover you somewhat out of state for emergencies. Yellowstone has a clinic that you pay an extremely small amount for out of your check for minor things if you need them. If you have chronic conditions I would talk to your insurance company in detail.
I am 60 and prior to this short try at Yellowstone only did winter volunteer assignments. Good Luck
