Thanks for the post! I’ve just signed up here maybe about two weeks ago and diving into all the information provided. Never done anything like this so it’s both scary and exciting. If anyone could lead me to any forums for extreme newbies that would be most helpful! Tips on quitting the 9-5. Starting fresh somewhere new but needing to break my current apartment lease? Or figuring out storage for my life here in Houston. Any information would be helpful! Thanks in advance. 🙂

Thanks for jumping in here!
One of the things you’ll appreciate once you get further down the line, is that in the seasonal employment world, you’re generally hired with a definitive start and end date. This allows you to plan well in advance for travel, shifts, next steps, as well as the basics of “where will I be living in November?” for example. Many of the seasonal jobs posted on CoolWorks.com have staff housing associated with them – and you’d be assigned a place to live for the time that you’re there and employed. “Rent” and “Utilities” come as a part of the package, so you may not have to worry about another apartment for awhile! That might be refreshing or terrifying!
