Dear Future Colleague,

If you’re passionate about protecting natural resources and don’t already call Virginia home, picture yourself here. From the Appalachians to the Chesapeake, our diverse landscapes provide numerous work and play opportunities for lovers of the land.

Virginians don’t need to choose between city dwelling and rustic relaxation. We’ve got plenty of both, and our temperate subtropical climate offers four distinct seasons of outdoor fun. Scenic vistas abound in five geographic regions. Enjoy water sports on the Chesapeake Bay and Atlantic Ocean, explore the rivers and rolling hills of the Piedmont, hike the Blue Ridge or sample the fare of our 200-plus wineries.

The Old Dominion is also the birthplace of eight U.S. presidents and the site of the Historic Triangle (Jamestown, Yorktown and Williamsburg).  The state boasts nearly 1,500 Century Farms and agriculture remains Virginia’s largest private industry. Apply today to help us write the next chapter in Virginia’s story and make a little history of your own.
