Breckenridge Colorado Ski Resorts
So, you’ve decided this is the year. It’s time to live the dream, snag a Summit County zip code, work in Breckenridge and log more days on the mountain. You just need a steady cash flow.
It’s time to fatten up your resume, lock and load that firm handshake and get a jump on the Breckenridge job scene.
Here are six tips for landing a job in Breckenridge:
- Early bird, worm, you know the drill.
People from all over the world are flocking to Breckenridge to live and work, so it’s crucial to start the job hunt early. September is a good time to begin your winter season job search, even if you’re not able to start the position until November. Keep in mind many local businesses close for the slower visitor month of October (mud season). Get in there and make initial contact early.
- Think beyond the want ads.
Powerful job search resources live here: Summit Daily, Craigslist, the Town of Breckenridge and Vail Resorts. Even though Breckenridge is home to a world-class ski resort, it’s still a pretty small community. Word of mouth goes a long way — ask your landlord, neighbor, barista, friend of a friend if they have any job leads. Spot a place you’d love to work? Don’t be afraid to drop your resume to a manager and introduce yourself, even if they don’t have a help wanted sign up.
- Work where you play.
