Ski-Resort Job Fairs

It seems like every year that filmmaker Warren Miller tells his viewers to "move to a ski town and take that job as a night dishwasher," ruining the dreams of high-hoped parents all over the world. And many viewers have listened. If you've ever had the urge to follow Miller's guidance, this season could be your chance.

Resorts all over the East are holding job fairs in the coming weeks, offering many a chance to get their proverbial foot in the door -- and maybe even hired on the spot. Job fairs offer ski-bum wannabes a chance to chat with possible employers, learn about different departments at a ski area, examine job options, and get scheduling info.

If you go to a job fair and you have a resume -- preferably one that's not written in crayon on a napkin -- bring it, though it's not usually necessary. A suit or tie isn't a necessity either. Ski industry people are casual (Why else would they work at a ski area, for the money?), and the job fairs can be lengthy, so dress comfortably.

As for possible jobs, the list is endless: Resorts need snowmakers and groomers, lift ops, ski school instructors, parking attendants, ski patrollers, hospitality and wait staffers, retail, and the list goes on. In addition to seasonal jobs, many resorts also have full-time professional opportunities. Be prepared to have a number of options thrown at you and be flexible.

Here are some of the job fairs going on in the East. We'll add more as they become available. If you know of any others, e-mail us at editors@skiingmag.com.
