I'll be working at Rio Blanco Ranch..
Though I wanted to go to Alaska, Rio Blanco in Colorado seemed amazing! Could not pass it up. Just after two days and putting in about 25 apps or so, I got replies from 2 places in Alaska, 2 in Utah and 1 in Wyoming..
It was amazing! Anyone here that goes from one seasonal job to the next? I have my heart set on Alaska and want to go after my season work in Colorado.
Congrats! I have not been to Rio Blanco...but it does look very nice. And I have worked other ranches.
This winter is my first season "off" in a long time. From early May 2006 to mid-October 2013, I went from one seasonal gig to another. Time off would vary from two days to fave weeks...most had a two-week vacation between jobs. Alaska might be a difficult choice in November. There are a few winter places, most will take people from the Alaskan summer first....they have lived a long history of lower 48 people figuring what an Alaskan winter means and bailing.
It's possible, and I'm not trying to dissuade you, just saying it might not be as easy as this summer.
happen to have the website looking for Kitchen, and Customer Service
You can go from seasonal job to seasonal job but it does take planning. Xanterra and Aramark at one time had positions that you could slide from one season to the other. But you had to apply for the jobs and be willing to go! as to Alaska position, ever thought about driving a bus? You could be a driver guide next summer for sure. HAP accepts applications beginning in November this year for driving next year. You would be able to choose one of three places to train - Las Vegas, Salt Lake or Bellingham, WA. Once you came back from Alaska, finding another position would be easy to including driving a school bus while you attend school. Great breaks on your new job and good luck on your future ones too!
