    "There are many job hunting websites out there, but CoolWorks is a job website with a twist. They are all about finding jobs in locations where you have always dreamed of going. Locations include places like national parks, resorts, ranches, campgrounds, ski resorts, and outdoor adventure companies. They also have a lot of seasonal and temporary work on their site for both the summer and winter seasons. Their website is beautifully designed and easy to use making searching for work a fun and interesting task."

    "BackDoorJobs provided me a useful way to find temporary jobs in the outdoors / environmental sector. Or course, it would be more useful if BackDoorJobs could find jobs in other sectors in case I wouldn't be interest in working outside."

    "Flex Jobs is a great resource for finding temporary jobs. They offer a great selection of both part-time and freelance jobs, as well as work-from-home. I used their site a lot over the past year and had great success finding work as a freelance artist. I have also recommended this to friends and family looking for part-time and work-from-home jobs, and they were also very pleased and successful in their job hunts. I would definitely recommend this site if you're looking for PT or freelance work fast!"

    "Handy links to an app page on Google Play store for an app called Wonolo, which is for finding hourly temporary jobs. It allows for simple searching based on location, timing, and wage. While this is one solution, I would rather have links to temporary job listing sites on the web, that do not require downloading a dedicated app."

    "Using this site has been beneficial to me. I had been looking for a job on my own for months. Then a friend told me about Monster. It's so easy to use! You have to make an account just like most other sites, and then you can have the world as far as your job search goes. There is a place to do some search in which you add in your desirable target location or where you live, and keywords for the title or company you might be looking for specifically. This process narrows down a lot of other needless places you might not want in your weeding of good search results. YOu can even search for career advice which can be helpful in times of looking for steady work. Lots of my friends and family members have used this, and they all have nothing but positive things to say about it too. Just be patient as it might not be right away when you get your most positive choices and opportunities. With 5 million jobs and 100,00 companies as it advertises on it's home page, what have you got to loose? Try it and be amazed like I did."

    "Buzzworker is really great if you need to make some money but don't have the time to take on regular work. I can log on to this app and find short jobs to do when I've got free time without having to plan ahead. As a bonus the app is very well designed so it's super easy to navigate."

    "The website was easy to navigate to find temporary jobs in the field that I was interested in. Once finding the job it gave me plenty of information on my employer, job requirements, or benefits. Finding a job can be stressful and tiring, but this site gave me hope with all of the jobs posted and how easy it was for me to apply."

    "Indeed helped me find a great job close to home. So much faster and effective than hoofing around town. It essentially brings the jobs to you and on some of them, you can apply straight from your device."

    "This is an actor's resource thing, so it's not necessarily for every temporary job you might be looking for, but getting side work being an extra isn't too bad of a thing if you need a few extra bucks. But for professional actors? Forget about it. This is more for amateur work."

    "Tapwage is another run-of-the-mill job-finding app. I wouldn't really rely on this app if I needed quick money. I would look to one of the major suppliers like taskrabbit for short-term, craigslist, or monster.com."

    "What a great way to find a job. Looking to work for a start up? This website may be the way to go. Just upload your cv and they do the rest. Before you know it, you'll get offers for interviews. I did. Instead of job hunting for months, it only took me a couple of weeks and the start up that hired me, so the perfect fit for my skill set."

    "For those looking for work, especially in the digital and tech remote jobs, WFH.io is a good source to help with accomplishing that. It is another tool that can help people land the optimal position along with other forums and job sites. It is rather simple and straight forward to use and I believe people will appreciate it for its simplicity and focus on the tech remote jobs sector. People should definitely look at it as another good tool to use in their job search."
