Grounwater Model Project is now HIRING!
The Groundwater Model Project is a student run
organization affliated with the Student Chapter of the American Water Resources
Association (AWRA). Employees construct and package the groundwater models,
which are shipped to customers across the country. Employees work independently
and choose their own hours (we prefer 10-20 hours per week). Funds generated by
the sale of groundwater models are used to benefit AWRA members by funding
projects and conference registration fees, so AWRA members and water majors are
usually given first priority. Email Hayley Templar (email@example.com) for an
application or any questions about the position or Groundwater Model Project.
Applications are due by the end of the day, Friday March 1st, 2013.
