We need foresters (especially new foresters who are just out of school). While we have several positions available, I am in charge of finding someone for our FIA position (listed as “Oklahoma, OK” in the below link). FIA positions receive additional per diem reimbursement for time spent away from home base.
You can find the positions posted here: https://na01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.forestry.ok.gov%2Femployment&data=02%7C01%7Cmadeline.hennessey%40uconn.edu%7C833bba7a2a4341b5fe7108d74974c5a9%7C17f1a87e2a254eaab9df9d439034b080%7C0%7C0%7C637058638199364766&sdata=wvVSnIDhULX%2BBfcolCUm4cVbYrvCOIFJrRaL3%2F6RZP0%3D&reserved=0
I highly recommend that you send me an email after you’ve applied – our HR can occasionally screen applicants who are qualified because they aren’t familiar with forestry terms. We prefer forestry degrees, but students can have related degrees if they have the appropriate coursework.
Oklahoma is a wildly diverse state with alligators and loblolly pine in the SE, black bears and red oaks in the NE, honey mesquite and horny toads in the SW, and bighorn sheep, mesas, and ponderosa pine in the NW. FIA cruisers get to see it all!
