Special Terms of Employment Notice:

Under each program position section "Terms of Employment" we provide the general date ranges of work available to staff for each position; however during the weeks of July 4th and August 8th MarineQuest will be offering reduced programming and may require staff to work a different program than they are usually assigned to. Some positions will not work at all during one or both of these two "reduced" weeks. More information will be provided during interviews.
