    Volunteering and summer internships are essential!!!! Get involved with our chapter and division. Go to meetings and network, get biologists cards and most importantly follow up soon after the meeting to get them to notice you. If you wait too long they might not remember you.

    When I am interviewing a prospective employee, use common sense. One thing that can hurt you is when you come to an interview unkempt or disheveled. I’ve always been told to dress for the job of your supervisor.

    One great idea before an interview is to have a few mock interviews with your friends. I’ve often seen potential candidates that look great on paper, they have the experience but when the interview comes around none of the experience is mentioned. Candidates think that its on their resume and that’s enough but for agencies that can’t ask follow-up questions, they need you to be detailed and explain your experience. Don’t rely on your resume to do the talking.

    Arizona Game and Fish tends to use a panel of interviewers, normally three people, which can be intimidating especially if you don’t expect it when you walk into the room for the job interview. In the panel there are at least two people associated with the job field and program you are applying and one person who is in a different branch or division that may or may not know about the field you are applying.

    The place you have always wanted to work never seems to be hiring, or at least never has job postings on their website. What are the best ways to get noticed by an employer you really want to work for?

    You have turned in your resume/CV, and the closing deadline for the job post has now passed. You really want an interview with the employer. Should you call them?

    ESTABLISH A STANDARD LENGTH
    Limit the length of the main body of the e-newsletter to a digestible size, preferably readable within five to 10 minutes. If there is more quality content than that to include, consider making it a weekly e-newsletter.
