I recently enjoyed the opportunity to have a fabulous conversation with a retired Police Officer. He said “I’m just starting to look at CoolWorks.com. Are these all entry-level positions for college-aged summer workers?”…
Since 1995, CoolWorks has been a leader in connecting people seeking meaningful and exciting work with the employers who are looking for their enthusiasm, energy, and knowledge. We believe that you can and should love your life, and we want to help make that happen! We feature job opportunities in great places — from national parks to ski resorts, dude ranches to summer camps, and everything in between.
The CoolWorks Story
CoolWorks.com is a website dedicated to Jobs In Great Places, and was created by the original CoolWorks Kid and Founder, Bill Berg. Bill’s life changed when a summer job in Yellowstone served as the gateway to discovering his place, his passions, and his people — as it has for so many of us who have had our lives changed by a seasonal job. An Information Systems class while pursuing an MBA in the 90’s led him to the spark of an idea. An idea that centered around connecting people to opportunities to live and work in amazing places. CoolWorks.com was born to do just that, and launched from the Tower Ranger Station inside Yellowstone National Park in 1995. For more than two decades that spark of an idea has continued to change lives, one seasonal job and one grand adventure at a time. CoolWorks changes lives. It’s changed ours, and has done the same for many of the people we know. For the CoolWorks crew, what we do isn’t just a job; it’s a legacy. Every day we get the opportunity to pass on the spark of undiscovered possibility and adventure. We believe that a rich and fulfilling life is marked by a collection of experiences with the people and places that we grow to love. We are honored to help people discover and collect those treasures.
Team CoolWorks is a small, well-traveled team of five explorers who’ve worked our way up the ladder from the entry level front lines of seasonal work to positions in upper management. We’ve been in the industry long enough to understand that career paths can change, grow, morph, and evolve as they unfold. Our personal adventures have taught us that great places lead to great experiences. Though each member of Team CoolWorks has a unique backstory and home base, we are united in the shared joy of the work we get to do. CoolWorks.com has been in existence since 1995, and every day, we celebrate the opportunity to help job seekers find life-changing opportunities like the ones that shaped our own stories.
At CoolWorks, we believe that life is made of moments, and the best moments are when we feel connected to something bigger than ourselves. Connection sparks joy, and connecting with our community brings us immense joy. We’re enlivened and compelled to spread the word about Jobs In Great Places® because they’ve changed our lives!ABOUT OUR TEAM »
Kind Words From COOLWORKERS
Sherri Tour Guide/Driver in DenaliCoolworksI I love you – I STILL talk about your awesomeness every tour!!! You are simply INSPIRATIONAL. Guests are so curious how someone gets into this great life and YOU are the first thing I tell them about!
It was from my desk in South Korea that I discovered CoolWorks. I’d gone there to teach English and save money, but the isolation proved to be too much. For three months, I longed for a sense of community. It was through your site that I discovered the opportunity in Denali. I had a phone interview with the Lodge, and the next day I left. After volunteering abroad through the fall, I returned to Keystone for another season. The seasonal life has become a part of me, and it’s a part I wish to share through writing. Thank you so much for introducing me to that life changing opportunity.
