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
Nancy Durango, CO
“Yellowstone National Park – I worked there the summer of 1970 and 1971 and had the time of my life. I also met my future husband there – as we worked separate areas of the park (he worked Mammoth and I worked Canyon Village) … it is a small world when you all work in the Park. It was a different world then, no computers and limited pay phone access, etc., yet it was a wonderful time and I will always cherish it – the park, the people, the adventures, the wildlife, and the great experience. I do recommend it for anyone interested in summer work – a great adventure for sure. Go for it!”
DJ Father of CoolWorks Job Seekers
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.
