Our two pennies worth when it comes to Seasonaire life

By somewhereelsecalls, 2 Sep '17 at 16:03

Lots of people have asked us in the past how we have manged to get into the lifestyle we lead, and with all the information available on the internet it can get confusing. Getting secondary advice from everywhere is usually wrong so why not hear it from the horses mouth? There are Seasonaires out there who have been doing this even longer than us but not many are writing about it.

The first thing you need is relevant skills, can you cook? Can you clean? Can you entertain a room of guests? Employers will be looking for relevant skills, if you have been a chef or worked in the hospitality industry for example. Even things like working in a supermarket on the checkouts is a great skill, it means you’ll have a serious tolerance for customers! If you’ve never worked with people before perhaps a job in a cafe or shop will help you get an idea of how to deal with customers, this would help you prepare yourself for being a Seasonaire. A lot of companies will ask for at least a year of working in a customer face environment or within the catering/hospitality industry.
