About the WNC Outdoor Industry Job Board
Welcome to the WNC Outdoor Industry Job Board! Here you will find instructions on how to access and post open positions in this awesome resource for our region.
What is the WNC Outdoor Industry Job Board (OIJB)?
The Outdoor Business Alliance of WNC is proud to host the WNC Outdoor Industry Job Board with a goal to better connect our amazing network of outdoor companies to people interested in being a part of the Outdoor Industry Hub of the East. This project was made possible by support from the Appalachian Regional Commission’s POWER Grant to support outdoor economic growth and job creation in Western North Carolina.
Who can use the job board?
This new resource is a benefit to outdoor businesses and job seekers wanting to get into the outdoor industry or grow their career paths with new opportunities.
