hi cmt,wow, can we tradeʔ you come down to antarctica and iʹll go to mitǃ that would be sweet. actually iʹd rather get in with whoi, but thatʹs another story…all kidding aside, if you have a bit of experience on your resume in addition to your education, plus enthusiasm and schedule flexibility, your chances are good.> iʹm wondering if there are any engineering> or computer science jobs in antarcticaʔoh my yes. all kinds of computer support jobs — help desk- pc tech- network admin- network engineer- sysadmin- traineretc.not much call for programmers unless you want a full-time job, working most of the year in the denver office with only occasional deployments to the ice.as far as other kinds of engineering (ee, civil, etc), those positions do sometimes come up but theyʹre not as common. canʹt really help you there. basically, most of the tech jobs are supporting the existing infrastructure.while youʹre still in school…. simply graduate. <ǃ-- s:mrgreen: --><ǃ-- s:mrgreen: --> if you can pad your resume with additional experience, thatʹs good too. most of the hiring is conducted about 6 months before (in april-june) the austral season starts, which is in august/october. so if youʹre serious, start applying in your senior year. currently raytheon is the primary contractor, and youʹll find all the available jobs listed on the rayjobs.com website (look for jobs in centennial colorado, which is where rpsc hq is located).good luckǃglenn
