Hey Guys! Job Question!

Hey guys. I just have a quick question that I'm seemingly having issues getting answered. A while back I learned how amazing it was to work outdoors. I was doing, physical labor work, Fencing! It was lots of fun. Anyways, I would love to work outside again, instead of being stuck behind a silly counter. I need the fresh air! With Spring approaching, hopefully faster then we know it. Does anybody know if there are some people looking for a young and energetic, willing to do pretty much any job that is thrown at them around? I wouldn't mind fencing again. Because I have experience with it. But, anything will do! Thanks guys!

if you like

physical labor, put up an ad for snow removal if it's your cup of tea...make sure you see if you can get insurance though cause you just never know. But it can give a bit of extra money and be physically demanding and of course outside  
Have you looked in to coaching soccer for little kids. Not too sure if any places are looking but it would never hurt to ask.

City

The city regularly hires casual summer help for outside work. I would love to do it but I get laid off a month after they have hired everyone for the season. I would watch the city website.  
 
Can you leave the Brandon area? The parks have summer openings as well for working in Riding Mountain and other parks in the area.

The area isn't really doable. But thanks for the tip about the city! Where abouts do I go to apply?

Landscaping

Why not look to see if you can help out with one of the many lanscaping businesses in Brandon? Wouldn't hurt to make a few phone calls.

all to sure if phoning them was a good option. I hate being non-personal about things like looking for a job. What would I say if I phoned them. Hi my names Kaileea. I'm looking for a job in landscaping and I was wondering if your currently hiring? And then offer to come by with a resume?

just tell them you are looking for a head start for spring openings and were wondering if they were going to be hiring new seasonal staff or if they had staff already. Even if they say they have staff already, tell them you will drop of a resume in case they need extra people when spring comes. It never hurts to leave a resume and the worst that will happen is you will be in the same position you are now.

If the company is local don't waste their time with needless inquiry calls. Prepare a resume and cover letter explaining that you want a job, joy of physical outdoor work, etc. and take it there yourself. And be prepared to be interviewed on the spot because many businesses use that first impression as a guage to your potential employee worthiness. Don't show up in ripped jeans or a slovenly appearance as it projects an I don't care attitude.  
 
Every job I had was one from cold calls and I always dressed appropriately - business suit for professional and more casual attire for less formal situations. The receptionist or employee that deals with you will probably comment on both your appearance and demeanor. Make a good first impression.
