Job Fairs Great Success

Recently I attended both Summer Job Fairs for the University of Manitoba and the University of Winnipeg. The turn out was great, over 300 students visited our booth. I was exceptionally pleased to see the amount of interest from Anthropology and Archaeology students. I encourage those seeking experience with the excavation process to submit a resume for one of 4 positions possibly available for Interpretive Guides.

The atmosphere in the summer can not be described in a blog. Every aspect from field jacketing to the public and the smell of the shale (only those who know the smell, know what I'm talking about) keeps you coming back for more.

If you missed us at the job fairs all infomation regarding the positions avaialable are on under employment.

Summer Employment

Every field season the CFDC hires young enthusiastic students to run the summer public paleontology programs. Some of those programs include public digs, museum tours and day camps. We are always looking for students who have an interest in paleontology and would like to spend the summer out at digsites or working with youth aged 5-14. If you might be interested you can find positions and their description at the CFDC website under employment. I hope to see some of you out there. Below is one of many images of summer students working at one of the museum's fossil sites.
