Most of you will end up in jobs where what you wear to work is based on looking appropriate. Comfort and style may also be considerations, but in most jobs it’s about looking like you fit in. In most jobs what you wear to work probably won’t affect your performance or safety, but it will if you’re a firefighter, law enforcement officer, first responder, or military service member. Those are jobs where what you wear matters–really matters. LION is a Dayton, OH based company that designs, manufactures, markets, and delivers products “to ensure the health, safety and performance of the first responders who serve our communities and our country.” LION has been owned and operated by the same family since 1898, and I have to imagine that they’ve come a long way over the past 100+ years.
The technology that goes into what we wear these days is incredible. The most technical gear that I own is a pair of Patagonia breathable fishing waders. They keep me dry whether it’s from the water that I’m standing in or the sweat caused by hiking into a good spot. They’re amazing from an engineering standpoint (waterproof fabric that breathes), but they have nothing on the stuff LION produces. We’re talking about products that are made to go into burning buildings, drug labs, and chemical spills. While LION seems to focus on gear, they also offer other products and services for the emergency services, military, and personal equipment lifecycle management markets. In fact, they even built “the last three largest first responder training facilities in the world.” LION is the kind of company that makes life safer for the people who make our lives safer. If you’d like to be a part of that, take a look at LION’s Jobs page. Right now they have a few positions you may want to consider including Copy Writer (Albany, NY), Marketing Coordinator (Albany, NY), Telesales Professional (Chicago, IL), and Project Manager (Washington, DC).
