Who We Are
OutdoorIndustryJobs.com was founded in December of 2005 to enable the Outdoor, Bicycle, Winter and Snow Sports, Action Sports, Fishing and Hunting Industries' job seekers and employers to network and connect. In these particular industries, a passion for the outdoors is the common denominator between the job seeker and the employer. Our mission is to provide the platform where "the passion can happen" for both job seekers and employers alike so they may form mutually beneficial life and business relationships.
Laurel King is owner and founder of OutdoorIndustryJobs.com and has worked in the Outdoor Industry for over 30 years. Her experience in owning service businesses in the Outdoor Industry enabled her to observe that people with valuable business skills who have passion for and experience in the outdoors had few resources to find a career in the Outdoor Industry. Until now, most of the recruiting done within each sector of the Outdoor Industry has been conducted inside the industry.
OutdoorIndustryJobs.com also owns and operates NaturalIndustryJobs.com, another job board that enables the Natural and Organic Product Industry jobseeker and employer to network and connect.
Both NaturalIndustryJobs.com and OutdoorIndustryJobs.com provide a platform for jobseekers to find a career and work in an industry where the employer and fellow employees believe and promote healthy choices and lifestyles. Similarly, employers in these two industries can find and hire qualified employees with a passion for a healthy lifestyle and the appropriate business skills. The employee will be more likely to fit into the established "culture" of the company.
Both sites are founded and owned by Laurel King, self-described outdoor lover with an active, healthy lifestyle.
Thanks for visiting and we look forward to serving you!
