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

“I wanted to express my sincere appreciation for you and for Coolworks.com.  As a new NPS concessionaire, hiring quality employees was a major concern that I faced. That’s until I found Coolworks.com.  Not only did you help me produce a great ad on your site, but the response was incredible!!  I received over 80 on-line applications, most of whom were qualified for the position. I can’t thank you and Coolworks.com enough for simplifying the process and sending so many folks my way.” 

Gregg General Manager and CoolWorks' Fan

“I worked at Yellowstone National Park a few summers ago. I put all of my stuff into storage and just went for it! To this day, it is still one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. I got to know the park so well and am still friends with the people I met there.”
