Hello Doc,

I hope you are well. I wanted to pass along some current environmental job openings so you can pass the info along to seniors and recent grads if you’d like. I work with the WVDEP often and I understand that they are working to fill some positions. Here is a link to their current openings:


Although, there are not a lot of openings in federal government now, there are some openings and USA Jobs is the place to browse/apply for federal positions.


My cousin recently visited G’burg for the Juniors open house and she loved it and really enjoyed your presentation! I’m hoping to bring my son (6) and daughter (4) out for a visit soon.

All the best,

Lisa Brannigan Trakis c/o 2000
