Seminars and workshops
Our seminars, workshops and mock interviews are hailed as some of the most valuable college experiences by our undergraduates—maybe that’s because many students are actually hired from the “mock” interviews!
All forestry students complete the seminar and workshop, and learn how to:
- write résumés and cover letters
- develop interview skills
- “interview” with a real forestry employer
Mock interviews are held in the Fall of Semester A, and our résumé workshops are held at least once a semester.
