This site offers thousands of jobs in great places. More and more boomers, seniors and retirees are working seasonally.

  As the economy improves and more and more people including seniors are traveling, the "summer" season is being extended so older and bolder job seekers can truly stay and work in the parks from April to November.  For those with RVs, this is an ideal way to live inexpensively in a National Park setting.  College students continue to play a role in filling these jobs, but their school dates are limited.  Older and Bolders can truly become indispensable to seasonal operators/employers.

CoolWorks also has a job listing page specifically for older job seekers searching for seasonal jobs. The employers listed on these pages welcome the 'over-traditional-age' seasonal job seeker. Their summer seasonal opportunities are awesome.

If you are looking for unique opportunities you'll find them. There are winter jobs at ski resorts, at lodges, ranches and resorts and on tour boats, work as a cook, in reception, as a guide, etc.  There are summer jobs in national parks working for the concessionaires who run the hotels, restaurants, gift shops and marinas. There are jobs throughout Alaska working at resorts, fishing & hunting lodges and for transportation and tourism companies as well.

A great way to learn about what it's like to work seasonally is talk to those that have done it. On the CoolWorks social network my.coolworks.com , you'll find a great group of more mature workers with information about working seasonally who are happy to share what they have learned and experienced with you. You can create your personal profile and then join the group to learn the inside scoop.

If you consider yourself an "older worker" and are looking for a seasonal job CoolWorks provides a list of employers that are interested in you. Of course there are thousands of jobs listed for younger job seekers too.
