Fish Biologist Jennifer Johnson attended the Student Job Fair of the 2007 Missouri Natural Resources Conference, in Osage Beach, Missouri. 


The Student Job Fair provides an excellent opportunity to reach a highly diverse category of students from across the Midwest.  Columbia FRO used this forum of over 200 natural resource students to establish contacts with aspiring biologists in aquatic conservation and advertise employment opportunities while promoting Columbia’s Fishery Program and work on the Missouri River. 


Job Fair attendees were eager to ask questions and learn about the Service’s job opportunities.  Increasing student awareness of opportunities within the office will enhance Columbia FRO's ability to hire competitive employees in the future. 


Johnson answered questions from the public on a variety of subjects including endangered species such as pallid sturgeon, invasive species such as Asian carp, aquatic species, and habitat conservation.
