The Next Big Job Application Surge? Asteroid Mining
Three weeks ago the asteroid mining company Planetary Resources put out a call for employees and now the organization has been swamped with hopeful candidates hoping to jump on board the first big step forward in space adventure.
According to the company’s website they have received more than 2,000 applications and have therefore stopped searching for full-time employees.
While Planetary Resources may not be seeking full-time applicants they will soon begin accepting application from college students for fall 2012 co-ops.
If you think you have what it takes just keep in mind that the space agency is seeking engineers who can help design and launch space-faring robots that are fully capable of mining asteroids once they manage to actually land on them.
Would you like to work for an asteroid mining space agency that still has a long way to go before it actually mines space rocks?
