Advice for Recent Grads: Chamois Butt’r Ambassador Beckie Irvin

“Congratulations to all the 2020 graduates! For those pursuing assistantships with outdoor programs, seasonal work, guiding jobs, and/or the dirtbag dream, here is my best “pro-tip.”

Take all of your certifications, scan them onto one page, and save it on your computer next to your resumes and trip logs! You’ll want/need them every time you apply for a job, side gig, pro-deals, and even when you do something like volunteer to lead a group ride in your community!

Any gig where you might need to know CPR 💥 BOOM 💥 You’ve got it scanned and saved on your computer, and you don’t have to go rummaging through all your backpacks to find the card from 2 years ago. I keep mine saved to my phone too. Congrats again and know that people are rooting for you during this crazy time!”
