Hi Jo,

I don't know if you'd remember me or not, my name is Jacklyn Lenten, I'm one of the participants from the 2019 Lake and Stream Leaders Institute.  I've just graduated from Northern Michigan University and returned from an internship on Isle Royale.  I'm looking for my next job opportunity and this position is something that I'm seriously interested in.  Would you be willing and able to send me more information or tell me who I can send my resume to?

Hi Jacklyn! Of course I remember you from LSLI. 

If you use this link (from the very top of my original post - easy to miss, I think!), it will take you to the WDNR jobs site and you will see the "Apply" button.
