UW System Career Trek: DNR, Public Safety and Resource Protection
February 9 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
This event is part of the UW System Spring 2022 Virtual Career Trek series, and is hosted by UW-Stout.
Attending a Virtual Career trek is an opportunity:
• to engage with industry professionals
• expand your network
• increase your awareness of career possibilities
You can build connections that will help with your job search AND discover potential career paths that you might not have considered. It’s a unique chance to learn about a company of interest, any job or internship opportunities they have available, and what they might look for in candidates that apply. The Virtual Career Treks will be hosted every Wednesday at noon.
The Division of Public Safety and Resource Protection is home to multiple public services and law enforcement programs – all dedicated to the protection of our natural resources and the safety of those who enjoy them. The Conservation Warden Service is part of the division, where anyone interested in this remarkable and fulfilling career can learn how to apply, the varied duties, training and opportunities to advance. Wardens perform the DNR’s law enforcement function and work cooperatively with other law enforcement agencies at the local, state and federal level.
