INSPIRATION & ENCOURAGEMENT

THE TRAIL AT YOUR FEET

You’re here because you breathe better at elevation. You believe that sandwiches taste progressively better the farther you get from the trailhead. You sleep best with your head in the open air and the sound of a backcountry stream singing you to sleep. You discover both solace and adventure in the Great Outdoors. You crave adventure, growth, and new experiences. Since 1995, CoolWorks has been the go-to source for Jobs In Great Places®. In many cases the opportunities you’ll find on our site come with room and board to make it easy for you to seize the day and go for it. Our Journals profile the exciting stories from fellow CoolWorkers to inspire you to take that next step. The Job Seeker’s Guide is a collection of the best advice we can offer you, from resources on how to best advocate for yourself, in-depth answers to some of the most commonly asked questions we hear, and topics it might not have occurred to you to consider when pondering this lifestyle. Whether you are still discovering your passion, need a seasonal career, or just feel the call to change paths, we’ve got everything you need to help you find your next great adventure.

Kind Words From Our Fans

FANTASTIC job on this Seasonal Recruiting in a Labor Pinch Employer Resource – you nailed it! Factoring in the current hiring climate and providing the statistics for the rapidly changing job market. Just wanted to say thank you to the whole Coolworks team for living and promoting the right values and attitude for the success of all of our businesses.
Caitlin McElhinny Operations Manager, Above & Beyond Alaska, LLC

Just wanted to say thank you for CoolWorks! Both of my sons 18 and 21, have made their way from where we live in North Carolina to Nantucket, MA; Jackson Hole, WY; and in a few weeks Vail, Colorado because of your service. I’m a big fan and share CoolWorks whenever I can. CoolWorks is the road less traveled. My kids will find their paths someday and look back at these jobs as great adventures where they learned a lot about the world and themselves. I’m looking forward to my retirement when I can browse your offerings for some adventure of my own.
