INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. — If you want to work at Diamond Peak Ski Resort this winter, start the process now. Here are a few tips to help you start on the right path:

View positions at YourTahoePlace.com/jobs. Are you thinking full-time or part-time? Inside or outside? Talk to employees, friends and contacts to find out what jobs might be a good fit.

Next, create an online profile so you can apply for multiple positions without having to re-enter your information. If you don’t have computer access, you may use the public computer at the IVGID Administration building, 893 Southwood Blvd.

Your profile is your first impression, so make it count with complete information, reviewing for typos, and not just putting “see resume.”

If you are struggling with the employment section or have just entered the job market, think of when you volunteered for events, babysat, or did community service.

Attaching a cover letter and resume provides another opportunity to show how your experience fits the position. Make a positive impression by following up in a courteous manner.

Attend our winter job fair on November 7th at the Diamond Peak Base Lodge to meet all the hiring managers. You don’t need to wear a suit, but look presentable. Dressing business casual or a wearing a polo shirt or blouse is appropriate.

Think about questions the managers may ask pertaining to the job or your experience. Most jobs at Diamond Peak involve customer service, so think of examples of when you provided exceptional customer service.

Come up with a few questions you want to ask about the expectations to make sure it’s a good fit.

Seasonal jobs can be a great opportunity for high school and college students, adults and weekend warriors. Join us at Diamond Peak Ski Resort where work style and lifestyle meet!
