PLEASE BE ADVISED : This is an automated response!
Greetings Fellow Paddlers & Guides-to-Be!!
If you are applying for any guide positions for the upcoming season of 2018, please be advised that position announcements have just recently gone out. We generally try to cap off the pool of applicants by February 1st and make a decision by mid to late February. We do accept applications ongoing throughout the full year though.
For whatever reason we may contact you earlier and it would be advisable and note worthy to consider that we may ask you to commit to a minimum of 2 FULL seasons. In this case you MUST agree to & sign a 2 SEASON CONTRACT!!
YOU NEED TO HAVE A MINIMUM OF THESE COURSES/CERTIFICATIONS
– NOLS WMI WFR (must be current) a course will be arranged in Flåm in the end of April
– NOLS LNT trainer, a course will be arranged in Flåm in the end of April
ALL CV’S/RESUMES & COVER LETTERS AND ANY OTHER ATTACHMENTS SHOULD BE SENT IN
ENGLISH & IN PDF FORMAT ONLY!!!!
REMEMBER TO LABEL BOTH EMAILS AND ATTACHMENTS APPROPRIATELY
Please keep track of whatever attachment you might send us or other potential employers by title-ing it with your name and what it is…. ie; JONES/CV or SMITH/CVRLTR or JONES/copy of WFR cert or SMITH/copy of PP or JONES/ L.O.R.
It does not help you or us if we get 20 applicants that all send us an attachment labeled just CV or letter of recommendation or even worse nothing at all, ie; P36892HQR.PDF –
WORDS OF WISDOM
“MEASURE 3X & CUT ONCE”
“A GOOD PROFESSIONAL AUTOPSY CAN ONLY BE PERFORMED ONCE”
WHAT THIS MEANS IS THAT WE WOULD APPRECIATE YOU NOT SENDING THINGS MORE THAN ONCE & THAT FIRST TIME IT SHOULD BE DONE WELL
As you are corresponding with us you will notice that your emails will contain one or more of these titles within the SUBJECT LINE of your email: (DO NOT CHANGE THESE & KEEP TRACK OF ANY CHANGES &/OR RESPONSES)
