For a long time I have held a passion of working within/around the outdoor industry in some form or another. I spent years applying for jobs, searching and never getting anywhere. Most turned me down without comment choosing not to reply. Every now and again I would see the perfect job, one that suited me to the letter (or so I thought). I would spend hours researching the company, preparing my application…….dreaming of what it would be like to work there and how grateful I would be. The inevitable always seem to happen with the eventual email arriving thanking me for my time but letting me know that my application had been unsuccessful.
