Our faculty has a proven track record for over 100 years producing highly sought after natural resource managers. Not only are our graduates highly sought after, so are our summer students.

“I’ve actually had employers come to me and tell me that UNB is the first school they come to to hire their summer students and they are really disappointed when they can’t get UNB students to work for them.” – Lienna, UNB Forestry and Environmental Management student.

As a student in the Faculty of Forestry and Environmental Management, you will learn how to become career-ready. Our staff will train you on preparing your resume and interviewing with potential employers. Our student services officer maintains a dynamic job board that lists hundreds of summer and career job vacancies in the natural resources sector, and also arranges for numerous organizations from across Canada to do on-campus interviews with our students for summer and career employment.
