Whether you’re applying for a six-figure job as a “physical scientist” or to make $17 an hour as a “drill rig operator helper,” every career opportunity at one Interior Department agency promises to be your dream job.
The Geological Survey, a scientific agency that studies the landscape of the United States, posted 13 jobs in the past 30 days and they are all a dream, or so claims the descriptions for each opening:
“Do you want to be part of an important aspect of the Federal Government, helping with exciting and groundbreaking incentives? If you answered ‘yes’ to these questions, then this is the job for you! Come join the USGS and start doing the job you’ve always dreamed of!”
You can be a wildlife biologist “assisting with evaluation of alternative conservation management options using an adaptive management framework for guiding managers in their decision-making process regarding habitat restoration.” Or a geophysicist processing “2-D and 3-D seismic reflection data acquired in petroleum bearing basins and acts as an advisor to personnel in the USGS in matters concerning seismic data acquisition, processing and interpretation.”
Surely you’ve dreamed of being a hydrologic technician, whose “work requires some physical exertion such as walking over wet, rough, uneven, or rocky surfaces; bending, crouching, stooping, stretching, reaching, or similar activities.”
The best dreams are the ones we didn’t even know we had.
