Fish Hatchery Seasonal Job?

Recommended Posts

Hello guys, I've applied at my local hatchery because they have a seasonal job position open... I want to become later on in the near future an Aquatic biologist. I want to get my foot in the door step which is perfect because it's in the department I want to work for.

My main question here is that a season job is self explanatory... It's seasonal. But is it a one and done deal or are you in the system and will you ever be getting called back? I want to make a career someday out of this but I would like to know if I'll ever have a chance to get a call back once they lay me off, is it possible other cities could call and want me for permanent position I'm curious to know how a seasonal job works after you're done. Have a good one guys.

I would say everyone's in the system but word of mouth if your a good worker is most important.  So many lazy one's out there...if you can give it 110% everyday and have a personality...well... you should do good.

Just my two cents

In addition to what Oregon Native said, make contacts with the people you will be working with, the vendors you will be working with, and whomever you come in contact with related to the industry. If the hatchery is run by the state or the feds, there is going to be some kind of protocol in getting the job application noticed. Hence make contacts. It's better to know someone than just have qualifications

Seasonal Job is just that, seasonal.  Most places require you to fill out an application for any new jobs that come up, even if you are in the system.  They aren't going to screen you against every job opening that comes up.  Your information most likely will stay in the system though and when you do apply, you will have the added benefit of checking the "have worked here before" box which in many cases pushes you to the top based on the filters they set up for their a application process.

 

Be personable and work hard and they will remember you and tell you about offers that may be coming down the pike later on.  I would also say that after your seasonal job expires, if you get it, continue to help out via volunteering or whatever else you can do to help out and do it in every aspect of the business, not just the areas that interest you.

 

 

Good Luck!!

I can assure you I will give it my all, I know seasonal doesn't sound really that appeasing, but I'm not doing this just to get a job I want to make this and take this further into my career of working with dept. of fish and wildlife and getting my foot in the door this early would be a perfect opportunity to prove myself (:

Thank you! I really hope I get this job to get my foot in the door step, I just don't want to be disappointed (If I was to get the job) to be know I'd be getting let go. I really want to take this further into my career instead of just seasonal.

Yep that's true, I already started talking to the hatchery technicians and explaining to them what I want to do in the future, he gave me pointers and so on. I hope that's off to a good start at least. I've also spoken to the hatchery manager there to as well.

well remember it is a seasonal job so the powers that be may not have it in the budge to bring on new staff.  Don't talk it personally.  I recently changed careers to become a teacher and the school i did my student teaching at had a long term substitute position available when i was done.  I took that and taught 7 weeks and then taught summer school there.  I never even got an interview for a position at that school but after talking to he principal, they didn't have any open positions or budget to bring on new teachers.  I took it as a great learning experience and a resume booster.  I am now employed in a district closer to my house, by about 28 miles on way, and am making a little more money.  Everything happens for a reason so keep that in mind as you pursue your career.

Turns out I didn't even get the job the seasonal aid was already hired, I called just recently...): I thought they'd at least email me or call me to inform me I wasn't the right candida or something but nothing... Oh well :/

Keep your head up, it happens.  Don't give up though, if you have the time go ahead and volunteer there, especially if this is the field you want for your career.  You will gain experience, contacts and learn if it is something you really want to do or if it is different once you get on the inside of the job.
