Professional Development Workshop – 2022 Annual Meeting

Continuing education is returning for the annual meeting in 2022 as MIAFS will host a natural resources careers and pointers workshop. This half day professional development workshop is designed to help students and early career professionals identify program and job opportunities, craft an impactful resume and cover letter, and prepare for the application and interview process.  There is a small amount of prep work prior to the workshop to ensure you get the most out of it.  You will receive a link to the google form for prep work after registration.  Registration and more details can be found here.
