As you well know, the JAM is quickly approaching. We are putting together many of the same events we usually plan for students including the Student Mentor Luncheon and the Resume/Interview Workshop. We are looking for professionals from a variety of career fields to help with this effort. It is so important for students who are still searching for their career path to hear from professionals from a wide variety of agencies to explore the possibilities that exist in the wildlife world. If you would like to provide assistance to these students as they are developing their skills and goals, then please consider volunteering for one or both of these efforts.
- The workshop will be Thursday, February 3rd from 10:00-3:30.
- Students will have the opportunity to watch a 30-minute presentation at their leisure prior to the workshop.
- We need volunteers who are willing to review resumes and provide feedback to students for 15-minute blocks. We are limiting this to 2 volunteers for each timeslot. Use this Doodle poll to sign up. https://doodle.com/poll/qqpwd6ar5h4az7sa?utm_source=poll&utm_medium=link
