I am new to this. I live in Austin Texas, and very excited to start my new chapter in my life..My hubby and I want to do this together. I want to get started first, since he is still working in his current position. I would like to start small, meaning that I am looking for very short term work.
Are there any suggestions to where I should start?
The shortest term of work that I know of regularly is late fill-ins for the longer summer seasons, but that's over with for another year. I guess the first question would be...how short is 'very' short?
And starting when? Winter places are still hiring now...but summer places will be hiring soon. Any preferences, like cold or warm, mountain, desert, island, national park or seasonal outside of parks, etc.?
Many of the ski areas are about a five month season. You could wait a bit, and see if there is an opening in the Help Wanted Now section...but then it's an immediate move into a full-on busy position.
If summer (May-ish) is OK to wait for...and more importantly to plan for...there are a few options. Most of Alaska summer spots are 4 months. There are a couple of places (Basin Harbor Club, for example) that have a smaller season within a season. And some of the ranches are also about 4 months.
