NEVADA FWO: Service Participates In UNR Career Fair
Region 8, May 12, 2009

by Jeannie Stafford, Nevada FWO

This winter, the Service joined numerous other federal agencies, state agencies, and local businesses in a career fair sponsored by the University of Nevada, Reno (UNR). Jody Brown and Selena Werdon kicked off the Service’s participation in the fair by providing an evening presentation on the wide range of career opportunities within the Fish and Wildlife Service.

Students joined the agencies and businesses the next day and had the opportunity to meet one-on-one with staff. Sue Lackey, Kathleen Erwin and Jeannie Stafford met with students and answered questions about specific course requirements, upcoming vacancies, and volunteer opportunities.

The career fair was a great opportunity for agencies to meet some of UNR’s students. The Service is looking forward to working with these young professionals as they establish their careers in the natural resources field.
