Snowshoe Mountain Resort Job Fair Saturday, October 29th

Snowshoe, WV – If you’re looking for a job, Snowshoe Mountain Resort Recruiting Manager Vivian Gibbons is hoping to see you at the Big Top at Snowshoe, Saturday October 29th.

“We’re looking for seasonal hires as well as year round positions that are currently open,” says Gibbons. “So anything from ski patrol to retail/rentals, lifts, housekeeping and front desk, so a little bit of everything.”

She says as far as numbers go, they’ll be hiring around the same amount of people as in recent years, around 200 positions.

“We are still doing that,” says Gibbons, “however our numbers have greatly decreased and we’re really concentrating on domestic recruiting as well as very much so, local recruiting.”

If you plan to go to the job fair, Gibbons says there are some things you should bring with you.

“Well, always bring your references, so anyone that you need us to call for you,” she says, “so bring your references as well as a resume if you have one; if not we have applications for you to fill out. Also it’s always good to come just completely prepared to talk about any and all career opportunities you’re looking for. And that’s what you need to bring [and] a smiling face.”

In fact, unlike earlier job fairs, Gibbons says they could make on the spot job offers this Saturday.

“What that would mean is if you come completely prepared with everything you need – your references and your I-9 documents, which could include your passport or drivers license, social security card, birth certificate, things like that, we would be able to ideally hire you completely set to start working,” she says.

The Snowshoe Job Fair is Saturday, October 29th from 10am to 3pm at the Big Top at Snowshoe. For more information, call 1-877-441-4386. You can also see a listing of available positions at
