THE TRAIL AT YOUR FEET

Kind Words From Our Fans
Work Arctic Employer, Fairbanks, Alaska
“Thanks to the incomparable support from yourself and the rest of the CoolWorks team, we have successfully wrapped-up our summer season hiring.”
Katie CoolWorker, from Michigan
“My parents are still wondering when I’ll get a ‘real job’. No matter how tough some days can be, I just remind myself why I am here. I encounter hundreds of tourists a day, and most of them have spent their entire lives working in order to afford a trip to a National Park. My seasonal jobs have allowed me to spend entire summers enjoying the trails, the views and the adventures. I may not have a ton of money in my pockets, but I have a mind full of memories and hundreds of miles on my hiking shoes. I’ve met lots of people that tell me they wish they would have done what I’m doing when they were my age.”
