Employment Opportunities with MIR Corporation
Thank you for our interest in our company. During the past 27 years MIR has built a reputation as a leader in pioneering travel to destinations (from Tibet to Tehran and everyplace in between) considered obscure, exotic, remote, difficult and even controversial. MIR (from the Russian word meaning both "peace" and "world") specializes in bringing people together to discover more about the world and, consequently, about themselves.
Since 1986, MIR Corporation has been guiding travelers across Russia aboard the Trans-Siberian Railway, along the Silk Road, to St. Petersburg and beyond. MIR destination experts design imaginative trips that take travelers far from the familiar and work closely with local affiliates in Western Russia, Siberia, Ukraine and Uzbekistan to carry them out.
MIR has twice been named one of National Geographic Adventure's "Best Adventure Travel Companies on Earth," and is a preferred operator for museum, alumni and special interest organizations across the U.S., and a preferred ground operator for tour operators in Europe, North America and New Zealand.
If you think you fit the profile, we would like to hear from you.
