What to Expect from Resort Jobs Abroad
Types of Resort Jobs Abroad
Work and travel? More like play and travel.
If you're a skier or snowboarder, there's no better way to work and travel than by working at a ski resort in another country. There are several different types of resort jobs abroad, so you'll have no problem finding the perfect job for you.
The most popular positions include:
- Customer service roles
- Hospitality (kitchen or bar)
- Resort Operations staff
- Ski/snowboard instructors
- Rental shop technicians
Wages will vary depending on your experience and the country you're going to. Most resort jobs tend to be located in countries with high demand because of tourism, so many of them are located in some of the worl'ds most picturesque locations. From mountainous ranges in the United States, through to rolling green hills in New Zealand and beaches in Australia, your new office will be the envy of all your friends back home.
Why Work at a Resort?
Calling all thrill seekers.
If there's a better view in the world than looking down from a mountaintop on a crisp winter morning, we haven't found it. You'll be working at a place that is tailor-made for fun, surrounded by people enjoying the elements, just like you.
Ski resort jobs abroad typically come with built-in benefits:
- Ski resort passes,
- Discounts on food from the resort
- Free or discounted equipment rentals
- Deals with businesses in the local area for discounts on products or services.
International travel is the dream for many, but unfortunately, it can seem like a far-fetched one. Depending on your budget, deluxe resort locations abroad may not seem like they're a realistic vacation option. Resort jobs abroad can help you live that dream - you'll get paid to live in another country, and earn money to support yourself. You'll be able to explore your new surroundings, as well as having a staff pass to ride the slopes after your shift is over.
Resort Jobs Accommodation
If you're thinking about a ski resort job abroad, you'll need a place to stay. Established agencies help you sort this out, so you can relax and have a blast.
Arrival: An established agency will sort your first few nights of accommodation and give you an orientation in your arrival city, as well as guaranteeing you a job before you go, so you'll be set to feel right at home as soon as you arrive.
Permanent residence: Each resort is different, but when they hire foreign staff through an agency, they're more likely to provide or help find accommodation for them. Either way, your agency will help you sort out your housing for the duration of the season, so you won't be stranded.
Why Work and Travel with a Resort Agency?
Resort jobs abroad are one of the most in-demand work and travel experiences, but they're also one of the most difficult for travellers who want to nail down a guaranteed job before they arrive in their chosen country. Employers at resorts often don't have the time or the capability to hire staff from abroad - especially not without an interview.
Established agencies have existing relationships with resorts abroad, and are able to take on some of the necessary screening before sending candidates along to be hired. Agencies know what resorts look for in an applicant, and can help you ensure that your application is as good as possible, before putting you forward. Once you’ve been fully interview-prepared, you’ll jump to the front of the queue for your interview, and you’ll have the best possible chance in securing your dream job.
