Attention:  Canadian, Mexican and Japanese forestry graduates!

The World Forest Institute (W.F.I.) is seeking suitable candidates from Canada,
Mexico, and Japan to apply for one-year paid internships as forestry information
specialists.  Qualified candidates must have at least a bachelor’s degree in
forestry and a record of commitment to that field either through further studies
or work experience.  Good written and spoken English is necessary since the
intern would be training in America.

W.F.I. is a non-profit organization whose mission is to serve as an
international forestry information center, where professionals in science
and business can access and disseminate information regarding the world’s forest
resources.  W.F.I. operates a unique program that brings forestry professionals
from around the world to participate in one-year paid internships as forestry
information specialists.  Several country desks have been sponsored, including
Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Germany, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Mexico,
Russia and the Scandinavian countries.

Interns research and answer a variety of forestry-related information requests
from international clients.  This is an opportunity to gain on-the-job work
experience in the United States.  Interns gain valuable new contacts in the
field of forestry, learn to manage projects from start to finish in a
professional manner, have the unique experience of working with an international
team of forestry personnel, and can take advantage of the Pacific Northwest’s
rich natural resources and wood products industrial center.
