Cool Jobs – Check out Seasonal Jobs

Seasonal jobs are a JobMonkey favorite! They provide temporary employment for eager applicants and provide exciting opportunities like travel, and valuable job experience. Throughout JobMonkey you will find a number of seasonal jobs, perfect for students and job hunters.


If you’re looking for either summer or winter employment, be sure to check out the jobs listed below. Each of them provides a viable work opportunity for seasonal employees.

We consider working a seasonal job cool because if you find a really good one, it represents one of the best working scenarios in the job field. This is especially true for seasonal employees like students, who only have a few months or weeks each year to dedicate to full-time employment. Students who are able to find seasonal work that pays well, can sometimes live for an entire school year based on the money they earn during a summer. You will find though, that most seasonal jobs with high earning potential don’t follow a traditional 9-5 work schedule. Many of what we consider to be the ‘best’ seasonal jobs require travel, sometimes to remote locations, while others demand long workdays. This certainly doesn’t mean that seasonal employees are a prison to their summer or winter jobs.  It simply illustrates that a large number of these jobs require hard work or travel in order to enjoy the benefits of a large paycheck. For example, many seasonal work locations could be considered some of the most beautiful places in the world. Ski resorts, the Caribbean, beach resorts, the Alaskan wilderness, national parks, lakes, metropolitan cities, and even dense forests are just to name a few.

In almost all of JobMonkey’s job sections you will find viable seasonal jobs. It makes sense to assume that most applicants are seeking either valuable job experience, a good paycheck, and/or travel. The good news is, that many of the seasonal jobs listed throughout our JobMonkey sections provide all three! This is just another example of why we’re so fond of our seasonal jobs.
