Next Tuesday (2/14): Natural Resources Career Fair!

This coming Tuesday, February 14, the Society of American Foresters – UW Student Chapter will be hosting its 3rd annual Natural Resources Career Fair in the Forest Club Room from 1 to 4 p.m.!

SEFS master’s student Cole Gross, who is organizing the fair this year, has signed up 17 agencies and organizations, ranging from Weyerhaeuser and the U.S. Department of Fish and Wildlife, to King County Parks and The Nature Conservancy. The fair will be a fun, informational and interactive process that will allow you to introduce yourself to these potential employers and learn about a wide range of opportunities in natural resource fields. You can come for any length of time during the three hours, and there will be periodic raffle giveaways (including several REI gift cards!), as well as free refreshments and snacks.

So update your résumé, do your research, and come learn about some great internship and career possibilities!

ESRM Seminar Series: Winter 2017 Schedule!

The SEFS Seminar Series will be on hiatus this quarter (returning in the spring), but we still have two other terrific series to keep you thoroughly engaged through our darkest months: the Wildlife Science Seminar and the ESRM 429 Seminar.

The latter is our subject today, and SEFS doctoral student Si Gao is running the show this quarter. She’s put together a terrific line-up of speakers around the theme of “Ecosystem Services,” and talk topics will range from deep soil carbon to plant remediation and oceanography.

The talks are held on Tuesdays from 8:30 to 9:20 a.m. in Anderson 223. They are always open to the public, and we encourage you to mark your calendars and join us for as many as you can!
