DOI and the National Park Service have afforded me so many opportunities that I could have never imagined just a few years ago. I am beyond grateful for the hiring authority that allowed me to turn a post-grad internship into a full-blown federal career. Through internships and now permanent positions with the National Park Service, I have fallen in love with land management and everything these agencies have to offer. I truly cannot wait to see where my DOI career leads me next!Kendra, Visual Information Specialist
