The end of a relationship is generally easy to recognize. You begin to wonder who the other head on the pillow belongs to every morning.
A relationship break-up on the private front is relatively easy to pick. Either you move out, or your partner moves out. And the sex finishes…Continue

Howdy y'all - So here, north of the Sangre de Christo Mountains. I have found myself working in the west again. Sorry to say, I haven't kept up with my friends and acquaintances through Coolworks, but I keep telling everyone where to find a job working seasonally. Good luck to all on the upcoming season.

I own a small business that frequently has openings available for college students and recent graduates. One thing that I have noticed is that there is often a huge disparity between the way job candidates appear on paper and the impression they leave when I speak to them in person.
To be honest,…Continue

You shouldn't feel like you need to gloss over it, or that the person reading your resume won't want to read about it. If you frame it the right way, your experiences as a temp can easily make your resume stand out in a sea of bland…Continue

I've been watching the cool works page for years; applying here and there when my current job is being particularly soul-sucking. In the last couple of months, I've started a serious job search. But first, back story.
I've worked as a swim instructor for four years. Before that, I was a wrangler at a summer camp. Before that, I was a full time college student majoring in Follow Your Heart and not caring what my future looked like as long as it "felt right". Let me tell you. That…Continue
