Living & Working in Great Places
I'm 65 years old and in the process of retiring. I've been on coolworks for 2 years now and have tried to find seasonal work. I even started early this year in April and submit my applications and follow-up with resumes and cover letters. I look at everything on CoolWorks and only apply for jobs that are posted as open. I've had 2 responses. One that resulted in a Skype interview a week ago with nothing since...not even a response to my email yesterday. The other let me know the position was filled. I don't know if I'm giving too much information or not enough. Could really use some advice from those of you in my age group that have done or are currently doing this.
Thanks for sharing, Beth! Nice to hear a review of sorts for Flaming Gorge.
My name is Denise and I am starting now to look for places, and apply. I am 64 next month:) I don't have an RV so will start out looking for jobs that include a dorm situation/housing. I am sick of sitting around, can't seem to organize my own time that well, not with productive things. I'd like to keep it just more of a seasonal, part-time type job. I want to move around too if possible, see America;)
Write me anytime you want to yack. I'm looking for people that want to gather and talk about what our plans are:) I hope you are still around, I know you posted this back awhile. I'm also looking into the .gov site for volunteer, maybe to start with. I'm retired as well, with some income from that, but would definitely benefit from a paying job:) I'd love to be able to save up for an actual RV, a small one, but well equipped would be a dream come true;)
PS Anyone is welcome to write me by the way:) My hope is to find folks that might get on here on a regular basis to visit in the a.m.'s especially:) If their working though, that might be hard to find them, maybe evening s then;)
Happy you found something and I do understand about God's plan for us, and it being a bit different sometimes, than ours, lol;)
I am listing/bookmarking all the sites to apply with companies. I have these so far:
Coolworks, xanterra, volunteer.gov, Delaware Corp (Corp of Engineers I think this one is, not sure yet) and someone said Amazon. If you know of others, would love to add them to my list of potentials.
Thanks, it was great to hear from you!! I want something with manual labor because I think those jobs are less stressful for me. I'd love to be a sort of tour guide, even maybe use my trailbike. Read one job about doing that, taking people out for tours on bikes around a park etc. I'll scrub toities though, done that all my life, LOL! Not picky, just want to be "out there". Denise:)
I just sent my first resume out today. My work record is not very impressive as I moved around a lot through the years. I hope someone will give me the chance though. I've learned (even in shorter, term positions) a good work ethic, and have good people skills. I am hoping for a job either as an Activity Organizer, tour-guide, or driver. I also enjoyed working in a laundry room one Summer out in Wyoming. I would like that, but on either a resort, or National Park more than on a ranch.
Thanks again for your note Shere:) Denise
