The USS Iowa's Hiring: Do You Have What it Takes?

The battleship is preparing to open as a museum, and looking to take on educators, electricians, welders, accountants, sales members and many more.

Those who have dreamed of working aboard a naval ship but can’t stomach long sea voyages or the dangers of active duty may have a chance now: the “World’s Greatest Naval Ship” is hiring.

And, it's online gift shop is open for business.

The USS Iowa is a new fixture in the Port of Los Angeles following half a century of service. It waters with much fanfare. For a few days the battleship sat about three miles off while underwater divers scraped the hull clean. Then it drew thousands of spectators lining bridges and waterfronts for its final voyage into its Port berth.

Built in 1940, the battleship that served in World War II and shuttled President Franklin D. Roosevelt across the Atlantic aspires to be a world-class museum when it opens to the public July 7. It is looking for employees to add to its ranks.

    Good luck, Sharon! I think a resume that says Battleship Anything (accountant, food and bev manager) sounds cool. :D
