Kind Words From Our Fans
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.”
Barbara Bell Executive Director, Alaska GeographicI wanted to let you know that through CoolWorks, Alaska Geographic hired four absolutely fantastic people to fill our seasonal operations in Juneau, Homer, Seward, and Portage Valley.I received applications from around 30 people, and of those, 15 were eminently qualified for the work we were offering, and were true believers in our mission to connect people to Alaska’s public lands.We feel that our new seasonal line-up is the best we have ever entered a season with and it’s because of CoolWorks’ ability to attract exactly the type of candidate that will be successful with Alaska Geographic. It’s also because you went out of your way to upload photos for me, so that I could write the most appealing ad possible. I want you to know how much we appreciate what you do! It is making a positive difference in our success.
