Community Relations Manager

What brand(s) do you work for? Camping World, Good Sam What other teams do you work with the most? I work closely with other members of the social team, the content team, and the dealerships. What is your favorite thing about your job and why? As the Community Relations Manager, I get to work with people across the country, all of whom are doing cool things and making a real impact in their communities, whether they are an influencer, a charity representative, or content creator. What made you interested in working in the outdoor recreation industry? I grew up tent camping, so I've always enjoyed being able to disconnect and go into nature. When I saw that Camping World was hiring, I thought it would be a great opportunity to work in an industry that I'm passionate about! How has Camping World Holdings helped you succeed as a woman in the workplace? How is this different than other companies you have worked at? Camping World has helped me succeed as a woman by always making me feel like an important, and equal, member of the team. There are so many strong women to look up to in higher roles, so it's easy to see yourself growing at this company. What advice would you offer other women who are interested in a career at a Camping World Holdings brand? As someone with a background in PR, historically 90% of my colleagues were women. It was definitely intimidating to switch to an industry that is viewed as "male-dominated" but don't let that hold you back! Everyone at Camping World is ready to help you succeed, so you should take the leap and apply.
