    hi, i used to belong but forgot my login name, so i am back as ʹadakʹ.my big question regarding employment in antarctica is:if you have been offered a position, accepted it, but then had to turn it down, does anyone know if they circulate your name as in ʹforget this guyʹʔafter applying for three years in a row i finally was offered a job at mcmurdo (about 2005). i accepted the job, but unfortunately had to give it up about two months before deployment because of a family situation (yes, i was seriously bummed). i did give as much notice as possible, and tried to reach my supervisor (the person who interviewed me) to explain personally but no-one ever returned phone-calls or emails which led me to believe i had pissed someone off.now the time is right again. i have already applied for a couple positions, but secretly wondered if my name will pop up in a data-base, or over coffee in the supervisor break-room.thanks for your thoughtsǃmatt

    hi matt,i donʹt know. my guess is no, youʹre not blacklisted — but if you tried to get a job with that same manager or department itʹs likely they would remember you.good luck. what are you applying forʔglenn

    thanks for your reply glenn,iʹve spread it out a little bit.i have some management/admin background and applied for a couple supervisory positions. iʹd also dig a ditch, climb a tower, or keep a science-lab clean, but seems the ʹgruntʹ positions are actually the most competitive numbers-wise.itʹs really for the opportunity to work in antarctica, and then see where i might fit best should i try and make it regular work for awhile.my father once worked at palmer back in the 1990s and i would love to check it out because of the stories he shared about emperor penguins and ice-climbing, but iʹve heard most people start at mcmurdo.then again, iʹve heard you guys have quite the music-festival in mcmurdo.matt
