Using CoolWorks.com

Job Seekers Guide

Applying for a job on CoolWorks.com is a bit different than a typical job application process. Seasonal employers recruit and make hiring decisions months in advance of a job or operating season start dates, and each employer has their own unique application process.

Seasonal Human Resources Association

For Employers

THE conference for seasonal HR and Recruiting Managers to gather, learn, share and invent the strategies and tactics that make their property’s HR efforts successful. Everything from recruiting, retention, and recreation to employment law updates, creative solutions to the growing housing crunch, and invaluable networking.

Retention Starts With Motivation

For Employers

A recruiting strategy is necessary, a retention strategy is crucial. You’ve worked hard to get them there and now you want to keep them there. The employees who are motivated, coached and mentored are the ones that will return as your department head managers and supervisors in future seasons.

If You Can’t Commit to a Full Season

Job Seekers Guide

Employers need staff to cover their entire season, so many will hire a combination of full season staff, early season staff and late season staff. In our experience, preference is given to those who can work the entire season – but there are plenty of short season opportunities out there as well.
