Just getting started

I'm just getting started in searching for an island job for next summer and I have to admit, I'm a bit anxious about what will come of this job search. I want nothing more than to find a job on such a wonderful island as Nantucket, but am fearful that nothing will come of my searches. Working on Nantucket for the summer would be the experience of a lifetime, and I just hope everything works out well!

Working at Ballards this summer

Through a very lucky connection of mine, I got a job as a server at Ballards Inn this summer. I'll be working there with my good friend, who like me, has not been to Block Island yet. They will be housing us in their employee housing. Has anyone had any experience with employee housing, or living and working on Block Island in general. I would love to meet some new people who've had or are going to be having the same experiences. Glad I stumbled upon this site!
