Teaching youth about federal career prospects

Earlier this month, Law Enforcement Officer Patrick Wiese and fire prevention education specialist D. A. Brabazon traveled to the Wexford-Missaukee Career Technical Center in Cadillac, Michigan, to talk to high school students about federal employment and USAJobs. Over 600 students passed through the halls, and a large number stopped to ask about summer jobs in forestry, biology, law enforcement, wildland firefighting and even heavy equipment operating.
