Vermonters like to be active and enjoy the outdoors. So why not get paid to do what you love every day? These 16 jobs won’t make you dread Monday mornings, rather you’ll be looking forward to getting back to work.
1. Vermont Skydiving Adventures - Addison.
From jumpers to videographers to pilots, each job is a thrill all day, every day.
2. Ski/snowboard instructor – Stowe, Sugarbush, Jay, Mad River Glen, Killington, Stratton, etc.
You know the old saying: Do what you love and you’ll never work a day in your life.
3. Sugarbush Soaring Association - Warren.
Fly above the beautiful scenery or teach others how to become a glider operator – either way, it’s amazing.
4. Northern lights rock and ice – Essex.
Climbing enthusiasts and adrenaline junkies will love this gig. Weather working with a group or individuals, this cold job will still get the blood flowing as an ice climb & zip line instructor.
5. University of Vermont - Burlington.
With the rising costs of college tuitions, landing a position at the University of Vermont will allow reimbursed tuition for spouses, partners and dependents.
6. Vermont Institute of Contemporary Arts - Chester.
This is a real find in Vermont, as VT art is often rural scenery and covered bridges so contemporary art is rare. Who wouldn’t want an interesting change of scenery every day?
7. Beer Brewer at Otter Creek.
Enjoy making beer and hosting pairing dinners while talking about your favorite thing… Beer.
8. Stoweflake Hot Air Balloon Rides - Stowe.
Up, up and away on this cool job with your office above the trees in a hot air balloon. Exquisite views every day and you meet all kinds of excellent people.
9. NEK Adventures ATV & Snowmobile Tours - Saint Johnsbury.
Who wouldn’t want to lead a four hour ATV adventure through the deep woods of Vermont? These guides share little tidbits about Vermont history while traveling several miles through the woods and stopping at several scenic locations with spectacular views.
10. Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream - Waterbury.
Employees at this dog-friendly place are allowed to take up to three pints of ice cream home per day.
11. Yellow Barn Music Haul - Putney Vermont.
Employees and members of the Yellow Barn Music Haul redefine what a concert hall can be, bringing music to grammar schools and conservatories, urban neighborhoods and arts districts, city lots and open fields. It plays for people regardless of their experience with or knowledge of music, their attention captured in the unexpected moment. Take in the music and let it captivate you while you work.
12. Tasting Center - Newport.
Here is a great way to enjoy some of the finest farm to table and craft every day. The flights or planks are a great way to try some local and imported fresh brews or ciders. And if you need comfort, a nice IPA and plate of the house Mac and Cheese will deliver every time. Now that’s what I call an employee meal!
13. Snowflake Chocolates - Jericho.
Anyone who has seen Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory has wondered what it would be like working in a chocolate factory. However, it may be easier to locate an Oompa Loompa than land a job here as it’s run by three generations of family chocolatiers.
