3 Fantastic Seasonal Jobs on Flathead Lake This Summer

Go Sail Flathead LakeSearching for seasonal jobs on Flathead Lake this summer? Here are 3 fantastic options to consider that are more fun than they are work!

1. Seasonal Jobs on Flathead Lake for the Entrepreneur

Work for yourself on Flathead Lake this summer season! There are plenty of seasonal jobs in the Flathead Valley that don’t require working for someone else. For example, you can offer lawn care services to homeowners in the area. Other options include managing short term rentals, nannying for seasonal visitors, providing shuttle services, or dog walking! While it may seem exciting to work for yourself, keep in mind that it can take awhile to set up your business and build up a customer base. 

2. Seasonal Jobs at Glacier National Park

While not on Flathead Lake, it doesn’t feel right to bring up seasonal jobs in the Flathead area without mentioning the opportunities at nearby Glacier National Park! Glacier hires 300+ seasonal workers every year, most of them from Memorial Day to Labor Day (when the park is open). One of the benefits of working as a seasonal worker at Glacier National Park is that many jobs come with shared housing. However, national park seasonal jobs can be fairly competitive and the application process is a bit more difficult than many other seasonal jobs. If working seasonally at Glacier National Park really interests you though— go apply on the USAJOBS website!

3. Seasonal Jobs on Flathead Lake for the Experienced Sailor

If you love to sail and already have built up experience on sailboats, becoming a charter captain or sailing captain is the perfect seasonal job on Flathead Lake for you! Go Sail Flathead Lake offers flexible schedules for captains and instructors, as well as the opportunity to receive your ASA instructor’s certification ( 3 years of experience required) if you don’t already have yours.
