Kind Words From Our Fans
Courtenay S. Cool Works' Fan and Seasonal Job AlumniSeasonal work completely changed my life! If it weren’t for one summer job as a wrangler in Colorado, I would have headed to the big city and missed the chance to start a career I love in an unexpected and completely amazing place! Who knew you could start a PR firm in Montana?

“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.”
