Marine Biology job searching SUCKS! Or I hate searching for Jobs! Or There are no Ocean Conservation Jobs out there!
I hear these statements all the time. True, searching for jobs is not fun and the economy is still not where it should be…BUT, it doesn’t mean there are only a few jobs available!
There are jobs being advertised for Ocean Conservation every day, numerous times a day. You just have to do make sure that your skill set and application will help you get the job you want.
Searching for jobs is a frustrating process (that is why I created this web show and the Ocean Conservation Careers Membership Program!). You are probably searching multiple websites a few times a day seeing if these websites have updated their sites with new jobs. If you do it long enough, you might be able to figure out if some websites add new jobs at certain time of the day so you can get a head start on the application process.
The problem is there is no reason to rush. Most jobs applications are not reviewed until after the set deadline so getting your application in before any one else does not matter and you may make some valuable mistakes by rushing the process.
