Jobs are being posted already, so get your resume ready and watch their site for new postings! We’ve heard that there may be a subcontractor called PAE for some or many of the positions–I’m not sure what kinds of jobs would be under that umbrella, but it sounds like mine might be.
Historically people who are on ice currently have had the ability to apply for jobs internally before postings were made available to everyone, but it seems like that might not be the case…so we’ll see how this goes. We are planning on applying for another season, though. I like this life.
Check out the discussion on the Antarctic Memories forum for a more in-depth analysis.
Here‘s another article about the transition.
The wait to find out who we’ll be applying for jobs with next year is over, and the winning bidder is……
Lockheed Martin! http://www.lockheedmartin.com/
More information to come soon. I will be posting information on how to apply for a job with the US Antarctic Program next season just as soon as I find out myself.
We should have more details soon on what the turnover will be like. In reality, the season is over in six or seven weeks, and that doesn’t leave very much time for the new contractor to come in and make changes before the last plane leaves. It will be really interesting to see what happens; this is after a three-year extension to the Raytheon ten-year contract, something that could have happened before we even applied for jobs with the program in 2009.
We’ll keep you updated.
