New Year … New Job?
Seems like this time of year a lot of people contemplate their life, their career, etc. It’s this whole New Year resolution thing. I’m constantly evaluating things, so this arbitrary date on the calendar doesn’t mean a whole lot to me, although the completion of another orbit around the sun does seem quite thrilling.
Maybe that’s why the Astronaut Candidate positions that NASA has posted caught my eye. The pay range is $59,000 to $140,000 – I presume the higher end is for those with pilot experience. A couple of things to note in the posting – 1) Training lasts approximately two years. 2) Frequent travel may be required. I’m guessing that some of that travel may involve great distances.
