Write a 250-word minimum classified advertisement for an ocean-related career aboard the Nautilus that you would like to pursue. The scope here is broad: potential ocean-related careers could include a wide range of jobs, such as science teachers, marine biologists, military personnel, lifeguards, underwater tour guide, hairdresser, even a psychic who communicates with dolphins (which a former student pursued). Any type of job that might possibly be served aboard Nautilus is game (even if such crewmembers do not exist in the novel). You are only limited by your imagination AND your ability to relate this career to a study of oceanography. Included in your ad must be the official title of the position, the oceanographic and personal qualifications (use your learning styles and multiple intelligence information here), how this career relates to oceanography, the potential salary range and who to contact for an interview. Respond to two of your classmate's postings by commenting on the quality and thoroughness of their ad (is the position well-defined? is it clear what's required? does the job relate to oceanography?, etc.) Your response must be a minimum of 100 words for each classmate.

ATTENTION!! Looking for a intelligent,outgoing individual interested in marine biology and exploring the unknown. Any science teacher sick of being stuck in a classroom or just sick of low pay, then this is the opportunity you have been looking for. The qualifications are simply that you have your bachelors degree in oceanography, enjoy scuba diving and can work underwater. If you are able to handle underwater equipment underwater then your starting pay could go up 50$ dollars. Your starting pay is already 550$ dollars a day with a bonus every six months. You also have the oppurtunity to bag an extra 3000$ dollars if you make a discovery. Imagine how much you can learn and the money you would make while learning it.

Hey Xiomara, I thought that your advertisement was really good. You mentioned everyhting that needed to be mentioned and got straight to the point. Your position was clear on what you wanted and what was going to be expected while at sea. I liked how much you starting pay was too. {haha} Your requirements were clear. The quality, the throughness, and how it was related to oceanography, was all very clear and defined really well. I'm sure your next assignment will be as well written and defined as this one.

Xiomara,

I thought that your ad was very thourough and to the point. It stated everything about the description of the job. It described everything about the job and what they would be doing. The pay seems great, where can I sign up. I thought the job offered alot to the individual applying for the position. I was wondering if the person who was hired would just be looking for sharks? You did a great job!

Cassandra,

Nice job on the Classified ad. I was very impressed! I like the fact that that you also noted that you should apply if you like exploring the unknown, and if you are a science teacher sick of being in the classroom or low pay was great attention getter. I also liked the idea that you would pay an additional $3000 for any discovery made during the journey. Would that be for any discovery? That sounds preety cool. Keep up the good work!

Stacy Very Happy

Stacy,
I liked your classified ad. I thought it was well thought of. You mentioned everything that was needed and added much more. I liked how everything flowed well together. I also liked that you stated everything that you wanted in the person and what the job entitled them to do. I think that is was great that you included how long the job would run for right down to the hours and minutes. Your requirements where clear and you got to the point right away about what you where looking for. The job sounds hard but the pay seems awesome. Where can I join? Great job.

Cassandra,
I thought your ad was great. I liked that you stated all of the qualifications right away and did not wait until the very end. For the 550 a day pay I would swim in shark infested water. I thought that the quality of the report was good and everything was pretty much clear. I liked that you told the applicant the things that were included in their job. I liked that you included not only people interested in the ocean but also people who liked to explore the unknown. I liked that you also included science teachers and people with low pay. I wondered if someone found like three different discoveries in one day would they get paid for all three? That would be way awesome. Good job.

hey cas,

nice ad. Your position is very well defined. You are a rouge teacher looking for adventure in the unknown abyss of the ocean which is blue black and white. I like the pay scale, yes, I like the $3000 for new and exciting discoveries and such things like that like new discoveries. $550 a day is very good for a entry level job. 550 divided by 24 is like twenty three dollars an hour, wow twenty three dollars an hour is a lot of money man. Yes, it would be great to be on a submarine and learn new stuff and explore new stuff. Do you have ot have any kind of degree, how about a preschool science teacher? does that count?

Hey K. Jackson,

Yes, i would really like to be a geophysicist. Your ad sounds really interesting to me. I like how your ad was set up, very organized and neat. Phd sounds kind of hard how about a BA. Yes marine stratigeophy sounds very interesting to me. I'm not sure what that exactly is but it sounds very technical and tech savy. A certainty in the ocean is you cant be allergic to seafood. Crabs, lobster, oysters, clams and other sea creatures are very tasty i thinks. Drecmas is an intersting currency... How does the drecmas compare to the dollar or euro or the yen?
