The OSU College of Forestry strives to provide useful resources for students in order to assist them in their search for permanent, part-time, seasonal, and internship opportunities. We believe that these types of career experiences will enhance their education and support future career prospects. We are also interested in assisting current and prospective students who are have not entered the College of Forestry but are interested in exploring the many career options available in the fields of forestry, natural resources, recreation, and forest products. The College of Forestry has partnered with employers from various sectors of forestry to provide job shadow opportunities.
Students and employers are welcome to contact the College of Forestry Student Resources & Engagement Office to find out more about job shadow opportunities. Comments and questions should be directed to Brooke Harrington, 541-737-1593.
The Mentored Employment Program provides College of Forestry (CoF) undergraduate students paid opportunities to work with members of CoF faculty on research projects or field experiences. These types of experiences enhance students' professional skills, build important mentor/protégé relationships and guidance while assisting faculty with important research.
CoF undergraduates and post-baccalaureate students, from College of Forestry undergraduate majors, are eligible to apply. Priority funding is available for students from diverse, underrepresented or underserved backgrounds that enhance a pluralistic community in the college. Students whose academic status would benefit from a mentorship experience are encouraged to apply.
The Mentored Employment Program provides a limited amount funding to pay student wages/OPE. Mentored employment opportunities are available during fall, winter and spring terms.
