What advice would you give to someone considering this job? Be prepared to work hard and donít single track yourself into one aspect of forestry. There are many areas to the industry with many opportunities. I would consider what you want to get out of a college course and look closely at what experience a college will give you. Be prepared to move or relocate and if you are successful in getting a job grasp every opportunity. Whether that is being involved in a project or if itís being involved in a feedback group, get involved.

Social?
Social
The Social person's interests focus on some aspect of those people in their environment. In all cases the social person enjoys the personal contact of other people in preference to the impersonal dealings with things, data and ideas found in other groups.

Many will seek out positions where there is direct contact with the public in some advisory role, whether a receptionist or a counsellor. Social people are motivated by an interest in different types of people, and like diversity in their work environments. Many are drawn towards careers in the caring professions and social welfare area, whilst others prefer teaching and other 'informing' roles.
