Rafting guide - the best recession- proof job

No comments:
Even in this economic chaos, some jobs are recession resistant. There are jobs that will always be in demand: teachers, doctors, soldiers, lawyers...But nowadays, more and more people are looking for more than just a job. They are looking for their "True Calling", "Dream Job ", "Passion"...

According to a new report from the University of Chicago:

People looking for jobs that bring satisfaction and happiness should concentrate on professions that focus primarily on serving other people...
A river guide is perhaps the quintessential outdoor job. You are around people and the outdoors. The best part of the job ? Freedom ! You don't have to wear a suit and tie. You can just be yourself.

But remember- you are not on vacation ( have you noticed the word "Job " in " Dream Job ? " ). Because the river guide is responsible for the well-being and safety of his or her clients, quality river guide training is absolutely crucial.

Rivers Inc. offers the top Guide Training course in Washington: a highly intensive, hands-on series of classes taught by some of the top white water river rafting guides in the state. This course will teach you all that you need to know to begin guiding white water rafting trips and exceeds Washington State requirements for white water guide training.

Though, no previous experience is needed, commitment, dedication, and a willingness to constantly learn and improve throughout your career is a must.

To learn more about the course and register for the upcoming season, visit their web site - Rivers Inc.

The end of the trip

Another exiting guide training season has started on the Wenatchee river in Leavenworth ! More outdoor loving, adventure seeking, adrenaline junkies will go through rigorous ,but the most fun 5 weeks of their life. And at the end, as a reward, they can proudly call themselves - river guides.

The Wenatchee River ranks within the top 10 most popular rivers for whitewater rafting in the entire U.S.! Due to its low hazard , the Wenatchee river can be enjoyed by paddlers of all levels. The river's appeal : plenty of Eastern Washington sunshine, pleasant scenery of the Wenatchee Valley and safe, professional outfitters.

One of them is Rivers Incorporated, a "smaller sized " company providing rafting trips and guide training since 1985.The company's multi-week instructional course presents information on virtually every aspect of raft guiding. During the 5 week course the trainees will learn : reading the river, paddle boating, swimming rapids, boat flipping, river rescue, pinned boat extraction, teamwork and group management. The course exceeds the state of Washington's minimum requirement of 50 on-river training hours.

But just like I wrote in my last year's post, besides of all the training , you will also get one more thing that not any other company can provide- warm and friendly atmosphere created by the company's owner Lynda Myra , who unlike other companies, teaches all the classes herself.
