Dream Jobs

When I think about the future, I think about moving somewhere on the west side of the US and getting a job at one of two kinds of places, either a company that works in the outdoor industry or a marketing firm that specializes in outdoor marketing. As I go throughout school, it has been helpful for me to look at the different jobs that are available in my field of interest and see if those positions will likely be open when I graduate.

In my case, I have found quite a few jobs that fit this description and would great places to work. Some of them require work experience that is beyond my qualification, but regardless it good to see what I will be working towards. I find that looking into the technologies and software that I will need to know before looking for jobs is beneficial as I can practice them while I am still in school. All of these jobs require similar skill sets and a knowledge of marketing programs as well as general business software like the Microsoft Office Suite.
