Working in the Forest Service can be great fun. Most of the roles in the Forest Service involve a nice mix of office and field work and I would advise anyone considering this work to seek as much practical forestry experience as possible in Forestry before joining the Forest Service.

Creative people are drawn to careers and activities that enable them to take responsibility for the design, layout or sensory impact of something (visual, auditory etc). They may be drawn towards the traditional artistic pursuits such as painting, sculpture, singing, or music. Or they may show more interest in design, such as architecture, animation, or craft areas, such as pottery and ceramics.

Creative people use their personal understanding of people and the world they live in to guide their work. Creative people like to work in unstructured workplaces, enjoy taking risks and prefer a minimum of routine.
