Working RVer Tip

Volunteer Job Experience Counts

Your time as a volunteer can count as legitimate job experience. When listing your job experiences on your resume, they don't need to come from paid positions. Document your tasks and duties along with your responsibilities and accomplishments. You also need to keep track of the dates of the volunteer positions and names of your supervisors.

Your Working While RVing Questions Answered

Finding Temporary Staffing Firms

~~ An RVer asks: How do work campers find temp services when they travel and aren't familiar with local businesses?

~~ I answered in part: When some call them "temp services" and others call them "placement agencies," it can be tricky. Here are some search tips and terms.

In the telephone book yellow pages, you find temp staffing agencies under “Employment Contractors - Temporary Help.”

You can also find these agencies by looking under specific service listings. For example, look under “Nursing” to find travel nurse placement companies.

Working RVer Tip

Set Yourself Above Other Job Seekers

Updated your job resume with a positive job report. You have your resume posted on our website. After you finish a job, if it was a good experience, post an update letting others know about it. You do this in the "Comments" section. This helps other RVers know about a good place to work. It also sets you above the competition. The facts are that many workampers grumble and complain. Employers look for workers with positive attitudes. Posting about your good experience showcases your positive nature.

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....
