Hey coolworks! I'm getting ready to start applying for my first seasonal job for next summer, and I'm pretty much open to any possibility. This is the first time I've posted on here, but I've been thinking about seasonal work for a while, and I'm finally in the position to give it a try. I've been looking at national park jobs, ranches, camps, resorts in almost any area of the country, but what keeps stumping me is that certain places I've looked at (Xanterra positions mostly) have a disclaimer that males can't have piercings or they are limited to earlobes. My piercings aren't out of control, but I do have 3 cartilage piercings and both my earlobes. Last resort I'd be willing to take them out if I got a really cool job that prohibits them, but I'd rather not. Most of my experience is in food service, but I also have prep cook and retail experience. I am pretty much open to work anywhere and do anything; has anyone here with piercings (non-pierced advice is welcome too though haha) had a good experience in a summer seasonal position? I'd most like to work in Colorado, California, Montana, Wyoming, Utah, New Mexico etc. Anyone have any input to help me out in my search?
Thanks Kelsey! I think I will definitely apply to work at yellowstone, what did you think of the actual work there? Housing, meals, wages etc. were you able to save a good amount? I'm a waiter in Arizona currently, living with my grandparents. My plan is to work at a national park this summer and then apply for a Work and Holiday Visa and move to Australia for a year and work there.
