Fisheries Technician at Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources - DNR
almost 2 years ago
My major did not necessarily focus too heavily on my job requirements as a fisheries tech, but the skills I acquired in this major were very beneficial. For example, CES fostered my love for the environment and taught me how valuable our natural resources are - which really made me passionate about the job I was doing. Likewise, this knowledge made it easier to communicate with anglers about environmental issues because I had a firm grasp on many problems facing Wisconsin's environment. Also, my exposure to all the natural science classes and labs that I took for my major were extremely beneficial because they taught me how to take good data and how to enter it into systems and interpret it. Overall, CES did not give me specific preparation for this job, but it gave me the skills necessary to be successful in a vast array of environmental jobs.
