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®!
Greetings to you all.
I notice that some job postings have a request for a seasonal professional. I take it that this means the employer wants you to have some degree of experience in the particular job, is this correct? Or will they take applications from any interested person?
Thanks for your help!
I always think that phrase has been a bit overused. It can mean a couple of different things and it might not really mean much at all.
Most likely they just are emphasizing that the applicant knows that it is a seasonal position and it requires work. It might also mean that they have had many pass through that didn't take the hint and thought they were on a at least a semi-vacation. For those employers it might mean that they want someone that has completed a seasonal opportunity or two or twenty.
It could also mean they were just trying to make it sound more business-like. Writing the seasonal professional will be... instead of the man or woman will be....sounds a little more important. But doesn't really mean much
Thanks Keith for being so helpful.

Are there phrases that would make more sense to you? We're always open to suggestions for clarity and understandability for both sides of the employment equation.
Thanks for asking, Mike!
