Workers On Wheels: Work For RVers and Campers

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

Update from Your RV Workers On Wheels Newsletter Editor

See top name shows in Branson, free. Visit Black Hills tourist attractions, at no charge. The best benefits of a campground job can be the off-site perks. Looking at work camping positions, you'll see all sorts of compensation packages. Some pay an hourly wage, provide an RV site and utilities, and include all activities and use of all facilities at a top rated resort. Others offer a slightly discounted rate on a mediocre campsite. Some offers are better than they seem at first glance. And, quite honestly, with some, I think the campground owner is asking for too much and offering too little -- but that is for you, not for me, to decide. Look at the total package, including the park location and how it fits with where you want to be and what you want to do. Then, base your decision on what is best in your situation.

You'll find a mix of jobs in this issue. Paid positions. Jobs out east -- MA, CT, PA. City park camp hosting. Working for the Army Corp of Engineers, in both paid and volunteer positions. Work for site exchanges. And, a gate guard company is hiring -- and one of the benefits they offer is health insurance. You'll find these and more as you go through the newsletter.

Bob and I hope you have the very merriest Merry Christmas!

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

Working RVer Tip

Be sure to read Help Wanted ads thoroughly. I'm seeing a few listings for someone to do "office work," that then go on to explain the position includes cleaning. Whether or not an office job should include scrubbing toilets is not the point. The point is that if you don't pay attention, you may find the job duties are very different than what you assumed.

Take Employment Advice from the Successful - Be Aware of Perspectives

Employment advice comes free and fast. Before you blindly follow what someone tells you, look at his success (or lack thereof). Look at his experience and accomplishments.

Depending on what kind of work you are looking for, you might be wise to take a second look at the person giving the advice about jobs. Has he ever been a working RVer? Has he ever worked for non-profits? Has he ever volunteered for a site? Has he ever been paid for all hours worked and received an RV site, too? Read the rest of this article.
