We post job opportunities in great places– everything from national parks to ski resorts to retreat centers, and everything in between. Our journal profiles the exciting stories from CoolWorkers to inspire you to take that next step. 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

Coolworks….. is what it’s name implies… I started on a degree Tourism and Hospitality Management on a part-time basis several years ago. My neighbors returned from a trip to Alaska with this website information for me. They had questioned workers there how they got these cool jobs? I have been viewing this ever since waiting for the day I could apply for an adventure. This is the year! I had found a way to combine my current job bus driving, with my tourism/customer service experience and instruction. I applied on a Saturday (the first job I clicked on this day) and was hired the very next Wednesday! I am excited to learn where this experience will lead me, but first will enjoy every minute of this working adventure. Thank you and I appreciate your good works!

“And as I always do, whenever I meet someone who isn’t sure of what to do in their life, can’t find a purpose, etc… I always write down the CoolWorks website and share with them the joy that I had when I came across your site. What you guys offer people like me, is the chance to fulfill a dream or just find opportunities that one never knew existed.

Thank you again so much!”
