12 Steps to Finding a Workamping Job – Part 1

by Workamper News

1.  To fully understand the amazing variety of opportunities available in campgrounds, theme parks, tourist attractions and a thousand other venues, we strongly recommend that you read every opportunity in Workamper News magazine, the online Workamper Hotline web page*/email and various other job pages at Workamper.com  We also recommend that you read the many articles in the Article Index online and get feedback from other Workampers via our review tools.

2.  Once you’ve done your homework, make a list of your preferences with regard to location, duties, compensation, hours, start/end dates, etc.

3.  Then start looking for opportunities that match your preferences – via the magazine, Hotline, by having your Awesome Applicants Resume* in the database, and by running Situations Wanted ads.

4.  Narrow your choices to the opportunities that best fit your needs, and follow the instructions exactly as they are given in the ad.

5.  We also strongly recommend that you create a resume in our Awesome Applicants Resume* database, where it can be viewed by employers. You can also email your Awesome Applicants Resume to any employer in the world, export to PDF to uploading to an online application process, or print it out to mail.

6.  Get Workamper feedback about specific employers via the Praise Your Employer* and Workamper Experiences* tools at Workamper.com  If possible, try to visit the location and meet the owners or managers, and if you get a chance, talk to other employees and customers.  A personal visit also allows you to check out the clientele and the climate.  If it’s a campground, you can also check their rating in the campground directories and review websites.

7.  During the interview process, be sure to ask as many questions as possible to fully understand what will be expected of you.  Additional information, references, etc., may be requested at this time by the employer and should be provided in a prompt and business-like manner.
