I'm looking for a summer job with housing that will allow pets. My cat is indoors and is an ESA so hopefully that will help the cause. I have experience in childcare as well as wildlife and environmental education. I was hoping for something in the Smoky Mountain Region.
Any tips guys?
Hi Hana! I'll be completely straight-forward: employee housing that allows pets isn't easy to find, especially if it's a seasonal position. It's not unheard of, it's just not especially common. In my experience, these are some of the situations that more frequently accommodate pets:
Many of the employers on CoolWorks will indicate in their profiles whether or not pets are allowed, but if they don't, it certainly never hurts to ask by sending a quick note to their contact email.
As far as Smoky Mountain region jobs, keep a lookout on the site in the coming weeks, as employers looking to hire for their summer season typically start posting their opportunities just before or after the holidays. Here's a couple of places where you'll find opportunities in that area once the recruiting season kicks into full gear:

Best of luck on your search, and let us know if there's any other way we can help!
A woman at the Grand Canyon North Rim had a ESA last summer. Run by Forever Resorts. I would think that every place has to allow ESA. You just have to ask. Good luck!
