Help Wanted

Seems to be common anymore that every one is looking for workers.  Might as well join the list. . . .

Most years we, the Nebraska Game & Parks Commission, will be doing on-the-water, angler surveys someplace in the state.  That kind of survey work is labor-intensive and expensive.  We never do a lot of angler surveys in any one year.  On the other hand, as it is with most data we work with, I will tell you that information is worth its weight in gold.

In recent years we have contracted that work out through the University of Nebraska.  That is the case again this year and at this time they are looking for workers to do the field work, the actual angler surveys.  If you are interested in a career in the fisheries field, this is where you start.  As a matter of fact, many of us started in exactly this way, and in my opinion every fisheries biologist should spend at least some time doing angler surveys!

There are two listings for two different angler or creel survey projects this year.  One is in western Nebraska.  The other will be a continuation of recent work that has been done in eastern Nebraska.

Now these listings are on a Texas A&M job board.  Do not read anything into that.  These are just the listings to try to get the widest advertisement.  Please, check ’em out!

Creel Clerks, Western Nebraska

Creek Clerks, Eastern Nebraska
