I've known I wanted to spend a work season in Antarctica since my Freshman year of High School. Now, as a Junior, I see the end of my public schooling rapidly approaching, and while doing some unrelated thinking, a possible problem with my plan came to mind.
I won't be eighteen until September of 2011, about three months after I graduate.
My primary question is as the title, is there an age requirement for support personnel on U.S. Antarctic bases? I couldn't find anything on Raytheon's site, but then again I never can, so I bring my troubles here.
Another question I have is when exactly do the jobs available to a person of my experience and education become available on the Raytheon jobs site? When can I begin applying for them,? Any answers would be appreciated.
Also, just to save time, let me just say that I realize how unlikely it is that a kid with a high-school education who's never had a job is going to be selected for a stay in Antarctica, especially in this economic climate. I know my chances are slim, no need to repeat it, but aside from that, any information you may have would be helpful. Thanks.
