The College of Forestry, Wildlife and Environment, or CFWE, is excited to announce that it has created a new staff position -career services coordinator -to help students navigate the transition from academic life to the professional world.   

Elizabeth Bowersock will serve in this new role. She has been a part of the college for 18 years, splitting her time between serving as an outreach administrator for the Southern Forest Nursery Management Cooperative and the CFWE.   

Bowersock hopes to alleviate students’ anxieties when transitioning from academic life to the professional world. She emphasizes the importance of facilitating decision-making discussions and providing students with clear expectations of the ever-evolving workforce. In her own words, she states, “While graduating college is an exciting time for most students, it can also be overwhelming and even somewhat scary to take that next step.”   

The career services coordinator will be crucial in assisting CFWE students in finding career opportunities and developing the skills they need to succeed in the workforce.   

Some of the initial responsibilities of this position include being a central point of contact for companies and organizations to promote their employment opportunities within the college, facilitating on-campus interviews, and coordinating with the university’s Office of Career Discovery and Success to help with resumes and interview preparation.   

Bowersock will also host the CFWE Career Fair each fall and provide career counseling to inform students of job expectations and support them with decision-making throughout their academic years in CFWE.   

The college is delighted to have Elizabeth Bowersock as the new Career Services Coordinator and eagerly anticipates the positive impact she will make on our students’ career paths.
