    "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.

    "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!"

    "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. "

    "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."
