Update from Your RV Workers On Wheels Newsletter Editor

I spent much of this week struggling with a dying computer – and then setting up and getting used to its replacement. At one point, Bob lovingly stroked my hair and made some comment about how he hoped it didn’t take too long for it to grow back.

The week did have bright spots. Besides making lame jokes (or maybe he really thought I was about to pull my hair out), Bob bought me flowers. I now have a new Gateway that far surpasses my nearly two-year-old Dell. And, we had our first snow of the season – huge billowy flakes.

I’m looking forward to a terrific – and busy – November. Be sure to send in your new Help Wanted and Work Wanted ads so we can get them posted for you.

Wherever you are in your work and travels, we wish you joy and prosperity,

Your Working While RVing Questions Answered

Very Little Job Experience

~~ Mary P. writes: My husband and I have been married 28 years and I have very little job experience except for homemaking. Would like some suggestions on basic skills I would most likely need to have in order to be a team. I have about a year to prepare. My husband has many skills that fit. Thanks.

~~ I answered in part: I think you have more job skills than what you are giving yourself credit for having.

Think of the things you do in your home to make your family and friends feel welcome and comfortable. Many of those things are the same types of things you’d do at a campground.

You are online and participating on our website, so you already have some basic computer skills. Chances are you’ll use them in the campground office.

~~ Read the longer version of my answer on the website, and leave your comments.

Working RVer Tip

How do you overcome your weaknesses? Prepare an answer to that question before you go on your job interview. The interviewer may ask you what your weaknesses are. What he probably wants to know, however, is how you compensate for them.

Working RVer Tip

Add a local address to your resume or job application. If you use a mail forwarder, make sure you list that address – and label it – as your permanent mailing address. But, if possible, include a temporary, local address that ties you to the area.

We started this site after corresponding with thousands of RVers, sharing what we’ve learned from our personal experience as full-time RVers, as well as what we've gleaned from employers and managers who hire and work with work campers and other RV workers.

We do hope we've been instrumental in helping you find the right work situation for your RV lifestyle.

We believe there are many advantages to having an RV home based business that we can take on the road with us. We've found a Watkins Summit Group business works for us.

We are also thankful for SBI!, the "do-all-the-techy-stuff-for-you" e-business building platform that made creating this RV resource site possible.

If you have questions, we're always happy to help. Simply submit them here....
