Update From Your Work For RVers and Campers Newsletter Editor

Labor Day weekend signals the changing of the seasons – and of jobs – for many working RVers. We hope you've had a great summer!

RVers wonder why employers don't respond when they send in a resume. Business owners and managers wonder why RVers don't reply when they contact them about a job opening. One possibility is that the contact information isn't working – make sure you use the correct email address or phone number. However, I'd take the lack of a response to mean the other party is not interested.

Want to make yourself stand out as an employee/employer for next time? Take a few minutes and respond to those who reply to your ad.

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

Your Working While RVing Questions Answered

~~ Kathryn writes: I would love to start working seasonal and/or temp jobs. Can you give me contact information for any temp agencies you feel are good ones?

~~ I answered in part: I've heard good things about Labor Finders, Kelly Services, and ManPower Inc.

Bob worked for a landscaping contractor in southern Alabama who hired through Labor Finders. Employees registered and filled out the required paperwork. After that, it was a matter of showing up on the days you wanted to work.

Words of Wisdom from Workers

Consider All Jobs: Those At Campgrounds and Those That Aren't

~~ Ray writes: We have worked at several campgrounds (workamper jobs) over the years but have found that many times you are further ahead to rent a site in a campground and get a job elsewhere. Jobs, especially in tourist areas, are very easy to find and I believe that in the long run many times you are better off.

Working RVer Tip

Now's a good time to rake in a few extra dollars doing end of the season jobs. When students go back to school, they leave employers scrambling to fill their shifts for the next few days or weeks. It's an excellent opportunity for RVers to step in.

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....
