Minn. DNR plans employment seminar for veterans
ST. PAUL -- The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is hosting a veteran employment seminar Jan. 3 in St. Paul, noting that many veterans want to work in a natural resources environment and many military skills translate into DNR positions.
“If you’ve served in the military, you probably have a lot of experience in many of our professional areas,” said Don Matthys, DNR management resources regional supervisor and a retired Army veteran.
At the seminar, veterans will have the opportunity to talk to DNR staff who work in the areas of logistics, fisheries and wildlife, informational technology, GIS and mapping, forestry, operations, communications, safety, real estate forestry, enforcement, human resources, engineering and landscape architecture and more.
Human resources staff will provide information on how to apply for DNR jobs, set up job searches, and receive job posting notifications.
This event is free and will be at the DNR Headquarters, 500 Lafayette Road N., St. Paul, MN 55101. Space is limited so, registration is required. Register for a time slot between 9:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Go to: http://tinyurl.com/dnrvets2018
