The limited opportunities, temporarily, for employment of graduating foresters in the United States is a challenge both to students and to educators in the field of forestry. The profession itself will probably benefit as well as suffer from the situation. If the condition were analyzed, it would probably be found that the plight of prospective foresters is little different from that o£ recent graduates in other professions, but such a conclusion offers little consolation to those foresters who are unable to find work. They are principally interested in discovering ways to find a niche in their chosen profession. A few suggestions are offered herewith, in the hope that zealous foresters might not become discouraged and that the profession might rescue a capable body o£ personnel whose loss would probably be keenly felt in the future.
