Almost every class that I took as part of WRPM has some impact on my current employment. Geoff Huntington's classes in law and policy still influence my decisions and led to my current job.
Requirements for Brent Steel's public policy class(es) prepared me for some of the challenges associated with working in a bureaucracy. The opportunity to take classes in multiple fields (e.g. forestry/MRM/geosciences) allowed me to craft a degree and thesis that met my existing as well as future needs.
Mary's class on water in society, Brent's class on public administration, Hydro lecture series, late night discussions at Bombs about our future roles and responsibilities. Summer class on water conflict mgt.
Try to narrow your field of interest but don't settle on an actual project or thesis topic unless it's funded. Make an effort not to write a single word unless you can tie it back to your thesis/area of interest. Volunteer for Salmon Bowl-its fun!, Make an effort to reach out to state/federal policy and decision makers if you are searching for a good research project. Get some exercise every day. Take Geoff's class- better intro to the Clean Water Act than you will get working for a state/federal agency
