Hello everyone,

I am applying to work a ski season this year, but I could really do with some advice as to how I can stand out from other people. I have only ever done two days skiing, so I don't really know what to say when they applications ask the "why are you applying?" question. I really don't know what employers would be looking for here, so any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thank you,

Anna

I am appyling too and don't put anything about skiing into that sort of question. I have actually never skiied in my life! Put things like why you want the job, why you feel you have the necessary skills etc. Also why applying to that comnpany.
Where are you applying to?

I have applied to Crystal and Alpine Elements so far. Also going to apply to Ski Total and Skiworld. No idea where I want to go, are you looking at particular resorts?

I think one of the main things they want to know is that you've got staying power; that you'll still be getting up at 7am when its -26 and you're brutally hungover. Show them you're enthusiastic and not a quitter. I run a seasonaire'g blog which will be covering this sort of thing over the next few weeks if you want to check it out -  http://seasonjunkie.com/.

Good Luck!
