Go for it. There is nothing to lose. If you enjoy the outdoors, forestry will really suit you. On the other hand, if you would rather be in the office, there are many jobs within the sector like mine so it is a win-win situation. The forestry degree course is very broad so donít think of it as stand-alone forestry. The course could lead you in so many directions you wonít believe how many doors will open up for you. When selecting work placement, be clever about where you do it. Research the company. Why not ask them if you can continue to work with them through the summer increasing your chances of being hired. The forestry sector is very strong at present and is set to get even stronger so for me a course in Forestry is seriously worth thinking about.

Enterprising?
Enterprising
Enterprising people like situations that involve using resources for personal or corporate economic gain. Such people may have an opportunistic frame of mind, and like commerce, trade and making deals. Some are drawn to sales and marketing occupations. Many will eventually end up owning their own business, or managing a section in larger organisations. They tend to be very goal-oriented, and work best when focused on a target. Some have an entrepreneurial inclination.

He was successful in winning an internship with EY through the EY DIT Head-to-Head Case Study Challenge. He interned with Corporate Tax and the Entrepreneur of the Year team for the summer. During this period he was chosen to represent EY Ireland at the International Intern Leadership Conference in Florida, where he made invaluable connections and unforgettable memories.
