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.

The Investigative person will usually find a particular area of science to be of interest. They are inclined toward intellectual and analytical activities and enjoy observation and theory. They may prefer thought to action, and enjoy the challenge of solving problems with clever technology. They will often follow the latest developments in their chosen field, and prefer mentally stimulating environments.
