The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is hosting its third annual Veteran Employment Information Event on Thursday in St. Paul.

Those who have served in the military are likely to have a lot of skills and experience relevant to many professions within the Minnesota DNR.  This event will provide veterans the opportunity to talk to DNR staff,  including those who work in the areas of fisheries and wildlife, information technology, GIS and mapping, forestry, enforcement, engineering, and more. Veterans will learn the types of jobs available, education and experience requirements, and how a military career fits with state employment.

The Minnesota DNR says that there will also be opportunities to meet with current DNR employees who are also military veterans, and learn resume tips for translating military skills and experience to position qualifications.

Guidance on how to apply for DNR jobs, set up job searches, and receive job posting notifications will also be available.
