Learning About PeakSeason

  • PeakSeason is a talent marketplace dedicated to connecting job seekers with employers in the most desirable locations on the planet. We specialize in seasonal and resort area employment, including hospitality, restaurants, outdoor and adventure jobs, transportation, food & beverage, golf & tennis, and retail.
  • PeakSeason’s niche offering allows us to directly target enthusiastic candidates by emphasizing the benefits of resort area employment. We’re not just a seasonal employment site; we aim to promote a legitimate alternative to traditional city-based jobs through the use of social media, paid advertising, and brand ambassador programs.
  • We’re live in the Rocky Mountains, with plans to expand rapidly across the United States during the coming year. Want to see us in your neck of the woods asap? Send us an email at info@peakseason.com and let us know.
  • You can find just about any job on PeakSeason that exists in a resort area. Given our focus on spectacular locations, the majority of our jobs tend to revolve around resorts and resort area activities such as hospitality, restaurant, outdoor and adventure, transportation, food & beverage, golf & tennis, and retail. But we also support traditional employers in resort towns as well: schools, pharmacies, financial institutions, groceries and so on. If there’s a great job in a great location, chances are you can find it on PeakSeason.
  • PeakSeason is free for job seekers.
  • Our profile-based system is designed to replace traditional paper resumes with a modernized web profile that includes photos, social media links, and more. While some employers still require resumes, many will allow you to apply with one-click simply by submitting your PeakSeason profile.
