How has Seasonal Job Changed Your Life?

CoolWorks is currently running a contest to hear from YOU - the loyal CoolWorkers! We want to know how a Seasonal Job - or several of them - has changed your life!

For me - I took "one" Summer Job in Yellowstone, which led to another. Then I took a leap of faith and jumped at a Winter Job in Yellowstone. Another Summer. Another Winter. And boom! I landed a year round position. And so my life beyond the MidWest began.

My seasonal jobs included Housekeeper, Truck Driver, Inspectress, Residence Coordinator, Personnel Manager, Cook, Busser, Dining Room Host.

Each job changed my life - for the better - even with some challenges! But of course, the very first "go" opened the door. I just had to walk through the door with my eyes wide open!

I had never been farther west than Chicago prior to my first Yellowstone. I remember waking up on the Greyhound Bus (I guess you really CAN sleep sitting up!) as the light of day allowed me to actually see the Rocky Mountains. It was love at first sight! 

Montana is now where I call home. I feel pretty darned lucky to have the abundant recreational and cultural opportunities available here, as well as a lovely and never boring "big backyard".

You have your own story - something clicked, something changed who you are, where you are, what you hope for, what you do in your free time - we want to hear that story! Don't be intimidated - we're not asking for "professional quality" video shooting! Heck, we'd love just to see your face and hear your passion pour out for 30 seconds! You can make that happen - we double dog dare you!

If you get stuck - email us at and we'll do our best to help you through. We'd really love to see you score $500 in travel funds to help you reach your next amazing destination!
