Thinking of the cycling industry jobs in general, one may assume that we are speaking specifically to becoming a bicycle mechanic or framebuilder. While we support these roles in the industry through our curriculum here at UBI, there are many ways to contribute to the cycling industry at large. Companies still need people to put bikes in boxes, they still need people to market their products, they still need people who understand the pricing structure of the industry to pick products to put on the frames. There are journalists, electricians, event organizers, transportation specialists, packaging designers, website builders, logo makers, T-shirt and hat designers, jig machinists, tool designers, bloggers, etc.With the learning you gain from UBI, you'll still be poised to accept a surprising number of these positions, in addition to finding a bike shop near you. Once you've got your resume refined (we will revisit in another post), check out a few of these job listing boards to find the right job for you.
