Hiring Preference Trends in the Outdoor Adventure Programming Field.
Garvey, Daniel; Gass, Michael A.
Journal of Experiential Education, v22 n1 p44-49 Jun 1999
A survey of 64 adventure programs in North America examined selection practices in hiring outdoor leaders. Respondents preferred candidates from an institutional background who also had personal outdoor experience. Compared to a similar survey 14 years ago, those hiring staff were more sophisticated in their preferences and were more likely to be women and working in for-profit organizations. (SV)
