Land management/consulting jobs

Postby JAXcrisp » Wed Sep 26, 2012 11:49 am

I am about to get out of the military and go back to school. 5 years in the infantry and I spent just as much time deployed as in the States.

I hope to go into the land management and consulting field upon graduation.

I was looking at FSU's programs and thinking of majoring in Wildlife and Fisheries with a minor in Forestry.

Any pointers or advice would be much appreciated. Thanks

What kind of management? If you want to work in timber management, intern with one of the bigger timber companies. If you want to do wildlife it is a much tougher road as their are a ton of small companies trying to get into wildlife management. Regardless intern as much as possible.

Don't go wildlife. and don't double major with fisheries.

Work either a soils major or minor into the program.

Get a degree in soils, get your wetlands certification and become a certified soil tester.

I agree Soils classes are important, also take as many GIS classes as possible.
