Most ski vacation destinations offer a wide variety of job positions to fill their overall staff. Some may suit well as a member of a restaurant crew, with particular coveted jobs as pastry or sous chef. Others also wish to be in a security team as either ground ski patrollers or bird’s eye surveillance pilots riding helicopters. There are also individuals who prefer to be maintenance specialist, in charge of monitoring weather control systems and utilities at the onset of a terrible blizzard. But there is also a very good reason for choosing ski instructors. There are the advantages of being a ski instructor:
Many ski athletes can aspire to be professional sports icons. One can always covet the life of a VIP with generous amounts of prestige and capital riding down with one’s personality and skill. The only problem with being a sports icon is that getting too famous and getting little attention are both bad for business. Popular icons can get into a lot of controversy and you can’t walk around public without receiving awkward attention from strangers.
As a ski instructor, however, nobody questions your skill and you are virtually identified with the same level of skill as superstar skiers. However famous you may get for being an awesome instructor to guests, it won’t be as uncomfortable as having your personal space invaded. You get respect from clients without suffering grave stigma if some aspects of your personality do not meet idealistic expectations.
Paid to make friends
Another great advantage of being a ski instructor is that your profession rides on how you deal with strangers. Being able to establish excellent rapport on short notice allows you to create an ideal learning atmosphere mostly conducive for developing a faster learning. Your awesome services may become an integral part of the best-selling ski vacation package featured in ads. Being a brilliant ski instructor is not only an advantage to the ski resort you’re working. Having many clients who believe in your skill ensures a solid self-esteem no financial rewards can compensate.
Diversity and making a difference
You can either be a ski instructor for customers, or for ground staff like the park rangers and patrol guards. As a customer service ski instructor, you can choose which specific group to cater. People with medical background can work as ski instructors for emergency health care recruits or hands-on physical therapists for recovering patients under enhancement rehabilitation. You may also be a ski instructor who can easily connect with children to a level conducive for attentive coaching. There is a diverse range of opportunity available for you in any ski resort industry. Ski vacation destinations value their instructors because they make a huge difference.
