Description: The Professional Development course is designed to foster professional development in forestry majors while preparing them for the job search. Students will evaluate their current skill set, and identify skills that may be absent but necessary to attain during undergraduate studies via paid work experience, volunteer work, and coursework. Students learn how to complete a succinct, professional résumé, a cover letter, and list of references, and will gain interview experience by meeting with local employers in a mock interview setting. Letter grade only.
