Foreign Students

Posted on November 30, 2011 at 7:16pm 1 Comment

 Last summer I visited Yellowstone and found most of the wait service jobs to be held by foreign students working more than one job. This must affect many Coolworks folks employment opportunities. Is that true or false?

I am a newbe to Coolworks but what I've read so far it is a wealth of information from folks that don't hide anything and tell you like it is. My wife and I are part of the retired corps of seasonal workers, that is we will be when we summer roles around.

I've  been told that Delaware NC will hire for a split season because a lot of college kids have to go back to school. I get the impression that  they would work until around August 1 and they would be looking for us retired people fron Aug.1 to end of Sept. I haven't worked there before but was out there the month of Sept. 2010. It was an great time to be in the park with fall weather and less crowds. To get your foot in the door you might make yourself available to them on that basis and get your foot in the door. Also, it wouldn't be such a long commitment the first time around. I was hesitant to commit for too long to make sure I could fullfill my commitment which of course would give me a better chance of being rehired next year if I enjoy it. Just my two cents but maybe a different angle.

Keith, Have you applied at Delaware North? I applied at all three and DNC offered me exactly what I was looking for. Are you wanting to work a long season or short one?

Hi again Keith ..... yeah, I just keep my eye on for interesting Park Service opportunities.  It took me a few tries before I finally got hired, but it has been a great experience so far.  I really love what I'm doing right now :-)
