We are the generation that can end smoking for good, and we’re going to have fun doing it. Join us as a Tour Rider for the Summer job of your dreams. Work from your “mobile open air office” while visiting Vans Warped Tour, Mad Decent Block Parties, Mayhem Festival, theme parks and action sports events across the nation.
This is our 15th Summer on the road and we’ll be recruiting and arming Finishers all over the country to join the fight to #FinishIt. It won’t be all fun and games, but through fun and games you’ll be helping this generation be the one to end cigarette smoking. You’ll be living on a tour bus with 8 other people while working long days and talking to more people than you have during your entire life (you’d be surprised how tiring talking can be). Rain or shine, we need the best of the best. Still interested and think you’re up for the challenge?
And yes, you will get paid if selected. Signing bonus? Eh, no. But you’ll also get to rock the newest truth merch and will be provided full board and accommodations (albeit largely on a tour bus...hotels on off days!).
In 2000, when truth started this journey, teen smoking was at 23%. Now it’s at 8%. We’ve made an impact, but we’re not done yet. Our goal is to get that number to zero. We’re taking a bold and unexpected approach to get there; we incite excitement and curiosity in the name of making an important cultural change. We’re agitators – which means we like to provoke – though we never talk down to people. Honesty and fairness are part of our DNA. Check out thetruth.com for more info, to enlist and to recruit your friends so that together we can Finish IT.
To become a truth® Tour Rider you’ll need to do all of the following –
* Make sure your video is complete and you have a working link to your video before you begin the application below.*
** You provide your own lodging and transportation for the trip. Additional details provided by email.
Create a video no longer than 3 minutes to help us get to know you better and show us how unique, creative, and talented you really are. Provide a link to your video submission from Vimeo, YouTube, or wherever you have it hosted - be sure it’s a complete and working URL. Use #tourrider2015 in any keyword areas so that we can easily find your video.
We’re trying to understand you better. We want to take a peek into your life and your environment. So, show us how unique and talented you really are. Help us learn about what’s important in your life and what interests you. Do you have a talent? Show us. Below is a list of some (not all, surprise us!) talents we are looking for in our team members. Your video is where you show us these talents. What are you waiting for?
Aside from being yourself, here are a few tips to make this assignment a little easier: Plan what you’re going to say/do. Think about your passions. Embrace your inner weirdo...then film it. Stay in the center of the screen (unless you’re showing off some skills). Speak loudly. Avoid background noise. Mistakes are cool, we’re human too. We don’t expect it to look Hollywood, and most importantly - BE CREATIVE.
We would love to hear about any unique skills or hobbies that you feel make up a portion of who you are. So if you're a social media star, musician, fashionista, or speak multiple languages, feel free to share that with us!
If you want to avoid having your submission disqualified, here are three simple things you should stay away from:
