You could work at any old golf course. Or you could be part of the staff at the oldest golf course in Michigan, one built on a historic battleground.

You could work in a run-of-the-mill retail store selling items made in other countries. Or you could be the face of a unique island shop visited by people from all over the world.

You could work as a delivery driver. Or you could drive a horse-drawn carriage down the only state highway that prohibits motor vehicles.

There’s a lot of jobs you could do. But on Mackinac Island you can have a truly memorable work experience, living in a place where other people escape on vacation and meeting peers from across the globe.

Seasonal jobs on Mackinac Island run from April through the end of the tourist season after Halloween, with college students taking many of the spots during the busiest summer months when they’re on break from school. It’s full-time work, but there’s plenty of time to explore the island’s beauty and enjoy the nightlife.

In many cases, employers make shared dorm-style housing available and some also offer meal plans. Plus, workers get discounts at many island attractions!
