He worked with a publishing firm in Elkhart, Indiana before moving to the Herbert, Saskatchewan district around 1905. He farmed in the Main Centre district for several years before moving to Herbert to work for an implement business. In June, 1912, Kolb was appointed postmaster at Herbert and held the position until 1931, when he moved to Kitchener, Ontario.

He was a delegate to several national postmasters' conventions across the country. Kolb was also active in the Herbert community and was involved with the Methodist Church and various sports organizations, including the Herbert Football Club.
