Pathways Forestry Intern

May 2019 • Petaluma, CA

What I liked

I liked the promise of a permanent position after graduation, as well as the trust that was placed in me by coworkers to help them complete the work. I also enjoyed the interdisciplinary experience I got, as I was working with all employees, not just Forestry work. The coworkers were very helpful, and I was trusted to complete my work without someone staring over my shoulder at all times.

What I wish was different

I would have liked a little more self-guided work and to have been provided with my own clients, rather than shadowing a forester the entire summer.
