  JOB SEARCH REFERENCE LIBRARY

Finding employment may take a trip to a virtual reference library to get background information on an employer's hot button. Keywords in job descriptions may lead you to search the web for more information. Pay attention to details in completing job applications. Find out how your prospective employer sees the natural world, and make use of the appropriate vocabulary.

Once you have gained employment you may need to do research for various projects like watershed and stream restoration, land stewardship and best agricultural management practices programs. Familiarize yourself with the abundant online resources for conservation work. Online libraries are extensive and they are extremely useful for gathering data and details for grants, and field projects.
