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®!
i am curious
i am 42
when i was 26 i got a cool job as a tour guide summers, traveling all over USA with wealthy teens
a great job and it was 3-6 weeks
i did this for 8 years when i was a teacher
from this point, i can't seem to get a REAL JOB
so now i sub teach and do seasonal work
do people make a living on seasonal work?
I've been making roughly $40k a year over the last ten years doing seasonal work. (as a bus driver/ski guide/emt/sled dog handler). It's not a ton, but certainly enough to be comfortable and put some in savings. If you are serious, hard working, intelligent, and know how to find good companies to work for, it certainly can be a very livable wage.
I don't do seasonal work to make money and if you do then you are doing it for the wrong reasons or at least that is my opinion. I work seasonal jobs to do what I want. I hike as much as I want in the summer which is a passion of mine and then in the winter I work at ski resorts and ski as much as I possibly want for FREE! So when it costs a family of 4 almost $5,000 for a week at a ski resort it costs me nothing except rent which is not that much.
If I wanted to make money I would go back working FT regular jobs. I have been working seasonal jobs for the last 4 years so I guess the answer is YES, lol
