Desta.co is looking for professional guides to beta test guide profiles

At Desta, we're making it easier than ever to pursue a financially sustainable career in the outdoors.

Building out a profile on Desta will allow you to showcase your skills, talents, experience, and rugged good looks to prospective employers. Whether it's an outdoor outfitter, resort or an adventurous traveler, you can begin to build a profile that will allow you to find employment and freelance gigs more consistently. NO MORE RESUMES (Yeah, you heard me).

Here's the catch: Guide profiles are in beta. This is tech speak for "super duper exclusive" and means only select guides/outdoor professionals will have access to build a profile. Remember when Facebook was only available to Ivy Leaguers?

If you want to lead the charge and if you're ready to show off all your experience, simply respond to this thread, send me a DM on MountainBuzz or shoot us a quick email at team@desta.co. Let us know that you want to convert your account to have "guide" access. That's all you have to do. You can be a part of this as we work out the kinks and build exactly what you need to advance your career and make that $$.

If you know some outdoor professionals or guides who could benefit from this service, please share on social media and tag any friends that may be interested.

How many prospective employers are using your site? How long have you been in business? Can you name some big name outfitters or pros that have registered?

Please forgive the inquisition, but I'm curious.

No worries! We've been in business for about a year and fully bootstrapped to date. We work with a number of rafting outfitters in Colorado, Utah, AZ and WV. You can see some on the job board.

Happy to chat more offline if you have more questions - Joe@desta.co
