Manhattan Beach, Calif. (January 20, 2014) – Malakye (http://www.Malakye.com/), the leading careers website for professionals and companies in lifestyle-driven industries, presents the Shmooz at Outdoor Retailer in Salt Lake City, Utah on Friday, January 24th, 2014, from 11am-4pm. 

On the back of a successful Shmooz held at The Agenda Show earlier this month, this FREE event caters to the outdoor industry and will bring together some of the industry’s most coveted brands to meet with talented and enthusiastic job seekers for current and / or future job opportunities.

“I have seen a consistent increase in participation at the Agenda and Outdoor Retailer Shmooz events since I first started attending them in 2011; it is a growing attraction that is marketed perfectly for our industry and our company needs,” explained Rob Hanel of The Clymb. “The Agenda Shmooz in Long Beach [held on Jan. 8] was off the chain! The quality of vendor/retailers onsite was stacked and it was by far the biggest group of candidates I have seen yet.”

Industry leading employers already committed to exhibit at the Shmooz include: The Clymb, Petzl, ENVE Composites, CamelBak, Lowa Boots, Specialized, Carhartt, KEEN, Osprey Packs, Jaybird, Black Diamond Equipment, Gregory Packs, DECKERS, Malakye.com and SCOTT Sports, with the possibility of more to be announced in the coming days. These companies will be recruiting talented individuals for a wide range of positions, including sales, marketing, product development, retail, product design & development, and more.

“We have interviewed and made hires sourced from past Shmooz's at Agenda and Outdoor Retailer; they have quickly become must not miss events for us,” stated Rob from theclymb.com “We look forward to seeing everyone out at the Shmooz in Salt Lake for Outdoor Retailer next week!
