      Have you heard anything from your summer employers and if so what is the status of your upcoming summer 2020 seasonal job?

      I spoke with the manager of my summer gig in Talkeetna and it’s looking grim. With the Port of Seattle suspending cruise traffic indefinitely there is now no official start to the season. I also spoke with some friends and old co-workers and learned that both Alyeska Mountain Resort and Chena Hot Springs Resort have suspended operations and laid off most of their employees.

      Hiya Luke. Thanks so much for that update. Curious if you’re working on a Plan B?

      Hi Kathi,
      I am. I’m looking around for farming/packing jobs this summer. Food production seems like a more reliable bet than tourism for the foreseeable future.

      @quevin_singh I believe that Chena is in full swing with hiring, they’ve got a lot of active positions listed. https://www.coolworks.com/chena-hot-springs-resort/profile

      You can find the GM Jena’s name and phone number on their profile, I’d recommend giving them a call and checking in. Best of luck!

      Hiya Luke. How’s it going? What did you end up doing this summer? So many employers opened and some are going through a second round of late summer/fall hiring right now. I’m curious where you ended up?
