I'm moving to Orlando in August to major in Marine Bio and I'm interested in getting some kind of job at SeaWorld or Discovery Cove. What I want to know is:

What kind of positions are open for a student like me (and I don't mean selling soda in neon green souvenier bottles), how much an hour is it possible to earn, and how many hours can I expect to work?

I want to get a job that's in my field but I can't if it won't pay the bills, yanno? I have to support myself through college. My safety net job is just transferring to the Walmart on Colonial Drive where I know I'll get my $8 an hour and get 40 hours a week (if I wanted to) working in the garden center.

But I wanna learn and earn money at the same time yanno? I'll have my scuba license (not like I'm expecting to get a job swimming with Shamu or anything....I'm a realist) if that would help me get a better job there.

But yanno what? I would love to be the girl in the wetsuit paddling around in a canoe in the dolphin area....yelling at people to hide their fish
