Re: Entry Level Positions
Well you made contact which is the important first thing. I don't know how many people they get applying for your kind of positions, but I'm guessing not a huge number.
Yes it's probably too late for a deployment this summer season now, although people do pull out and requirements change so it's not entirely a total end of the story for this season (probably 90% or more though).
Get in as soon as you can with your application in March and state your availability dates. I don't know about specific dates I'm afraid, but I do know that keenness and tenacity can pay off in getting a job in Antarctica.
Best of luck.
