The Employer's Perspective on New Hires
Abstract:Forestry leaders in federal and state government agencies, nongovernment organizations, forest certification, consulting, and industry report that they are seeking forestry graduates with technical depth plus the breadth of knowledge, inquiring minds, and integrative skills that will serve them throughout their careers in the profession. The precise mix of skills and expertise varies with the needs of the employer, but most respondents question the ability of four-year degree programs to prepare students adequately for the challenges that forestry faces.
