Summer Job with ADF&G

Job opening in the Marine Creel program in Juneau. See info below

Subject: [EXTERNAL] Job Posting Notice: 3 seasonal short-term non-permanent positions in Juneau area with ADF&G Sport Fish
To: <>



ADF&G Sport Fish is now recruiting 3 seasonal positions working for the Marine Creel Program, from May 7- Sept 3, 2019 (there is some flexibility in the end date, for students returning to school).


Potential candidates should conduct creel interviews of marine boat anglers returning to Juneau area docks, harbors and roadside fisheries.  Using standardized methods, creel technicians collect biological information, collect Coded-Wire-Tag and genetics samples from salmon, and collect fishing effort and harvest information.  These entry-level positions provide a great introduction to basic field work, invaluable work experience, skills at interviewing and interacting with the angling public, and knowledge about locally caught species and area sport fishing.  Classroom and on-the-job training will be provided.  Skills and knowledge learned are useful for a variety of positions in the fisheries field.


Three positions will be hired in the Juneau area.  These are seasonal full time non-permanent positions and are advertised locally through the local Juneau Job Service.  If interested, applications are available at Juneau Job Service, or contact David Love, at 907-465-4318 for more information.



Thanks so much for posting this announcement.

Summer Internship in Haines

HI All,

See below for an internship opportunity in Haines this summer.



Good morning everyone,


Each year, UAS selects one student as a summer intern for the American Bald Eagle Foundation in Haines, Alaska. This year, our candidate decided to go with another internship so we are actively trying to identify another student applicant. We've had past interns that were biology/marine biology and environmental science majors as well as a BLA student, so any academic discipline is acceptable as they bring valuable contributions to the program. This internship covers the cost of transportation to Haines and back, free housing, and a weekly stipend of $190 to use for food and other expenses. 


Our student intern works with a team of other interns from across the country who each give oral presentations to visitors about the wildlife and flora/fauna in Alaska and also provide husbandry to one of the raptors assigned to them there at the foundation. They are also involved with bird rescues, research, and other wildlife opportunities both in Haines and in the Yukon (on a 2 week rotation). Two of our previous interns were hired on as employees, and two other interns asked if they could return for a second summer! It's a pretty great opportunity...


If you know of any students who might be interested and would represent UAS well, PLEASE send them my way - we need to move quickly on this, unfortunately. 


Thank you so much for any help that you can extend on this!

New Weblog Item

Hi All,

Nikki Hinds who is the Assistant Director of the Mendenhall Glacier Visitor Center sent me some websites that may be of interest to people looking for summer positions. She also provided information about how to transition from seasonal into permanent positions within Federal Agencies. See links in the email below:


Hi Eran,

I enjoyed coming to your class last week.  Below are some links for more information on some of the programs I mentioned.


This is for the Resource Assistant program.  Mobilize Green and Conservation Legacy fall under this.


This is for the hiring authority that allows someone with 24 months of temporary seasonal work to apply for a permanent position.


This is some information regarding the Pathways program which hires current students and recent graduates.


I’m guessing you’ve shared this link but here’s SCA.
