About Me:
I worked seasonal so I could road trip and experience new places for more than two weeks. In my past life I worked in print production/coordination, advertising/marketing and loved it. My seasonal jobs: Front Desk, Jackson Lake Lodge (Grand Teton Lodge Company), summer 2005. Warehouse Driver, Grand Teton Association, summer 2007. Night Audit/Front Desk, Wuksachi Lodge, Sequoia National Park, winter 2007/08. Museum Store Clerk, Mackinac State Historic Parks, spring 2008. Tourism Assistant, Travel Lane County, 2008-2010. I'll miss the road but I'm excited to be able to sleep in my own bed and wear my own clothes. 2010, returned to school for medical lab tech - is there such thing as a traveling CSI?
Last Seasonal Job:
Museum Store Clerk for Mackinac State Historic Parks
Favorite Seasonal Job:
That summer I was 16 and worked at Dairy Queen. We launched the Blizzard!
Dream Job:
Crew on a tv show that travels around the country

The snow arrived late, in November, in a slushy mess. Then it snowed… Continue

Welcome to X,000 feet

Working seasonally in a mountain town, there are some things you have to figure out on your own. Like, can I really drink less here and get drunk faster? Here's a few things employers should mention at orientation.

Welcome to X,000 feet.

* For the first two weeks you will be soooo tired and feel lame that you don't want to hike or go out. Your mundane job seems to take it out of you. You just want to sleep. Just go with it. It will pass.

* Bring Kleenex.… Continue

Hey Angel - Kim is my supervisor! She's fun. Wuk is pretty good if a bit disfunctional! I worked for JLL in 2005 - love the Tetons. And I'm from the OR coast. Maybe you've seen me cruising in my convertible! I hope to get to Alaska in a year or so.

When i was there they did the bell boys took you to your dorms but, I don't know how it would be now. You can get a horse and buggie which are taxi's to help you. Let me know how it goes i want to visit up there this summer just to see if anyone i would know would still be there. Good luck. i am sure you will be fine. What hotel are you going to be working at? or are you just going for a vacation?

I enjoyed 4 summers of it and was able to save money. IF, you have the oppurtuntiy to go and work there i wouldn't pass it up. Plenty of time to do alot of biking!! It is a great place. What else do you want to know? Just ask.
