Last week on Friday March 30th, I was interviewed over the phone with a fisheries biologist from Soldotna, Alaska for a summer internship position working with the USFWS Fishery Program there on the Kenai Peninsula.
I was offered another position working as a research assistant for the summer on a river otter project locally here in the Finger Lakes, and it was very hard for me to make this decision.
BUT, I've made it and off I go May 27th to Soldotna, Alaska!
Never in 100 years would I have thought that within 2 years of study in this field, I'd be ready and able to get a REAL job! It's also kind of funny to me that I was selected, as I'm such a "mammal lover"...all things furry with faces are my gig. I've never really been a "fish head", but I guess I will learn to be!
