To all you snowshoers and hikers –
I’m Tori, and I’ve spent the last few months of college working as a marketing intern with Tubbs Snowshoes. It’s been a blast working with the marketing team, and having the opportunity to connect with awesome people like you in the outdoor industry!
Here’s how my days typically went at Tubbs, along with a few things I learned:
9:00am – arrive at the office – with coffee in hand – our headquarters are in Seattle after all!
9:00am-noon – I worked on various projects with the marketing team – anything from attending meetings, writing press releases, monitoring social media, or connecting with brand ambassadors. It was really great getting to work with other people who love the outdoors and snowsports as much as I do, which made our projects fun and collaborative.
12pm – lunch break – there were plenty of opportunities for Tubbs team bonding, and a few of our lunch breaks included skating on Alki Beach nearby or watching the World Cup games at local restaurants. (There’s also a trampoline and a gym in the Tubbs warehouse!)
12pm-2pm – since I was only at Tubbs part time while I finished school at the University of Washington, I typically left around 2pm. The later half of the day I had more time to work on my own projects for the brand. One of the most fun things I got to work on was planning a group hike for National Trails Day. We got together a group of brand ambassadors and friends to represent Tubbs at Lake Serene in the North Cascade mountains.
My time at Tubbs really gave important meaning to my college experience and prepared me with some essential skills for my future marketing career within the outdoor industry. Connecting with people who share my love for the outdoors is definitely something that energizes me to go to work everyday, and it brings energy into the industry. I think it’s safe to say that one of the prerequisites for working at Tubbs is a love for snow and the outdoors.
Even though my career in the outdoor industry is just beginning, I’m looking forward to mixing my work with time outside and bringing energy into the things I’m already passionate about – spending time in the mountains with awesome people!
