Tasting Room Sales, Lake Chelan Winery in Chelan, Washington

I am currently working for Lake Chelan Winery, primarily as a salesman in the tasting room, but I also work a little in the production and shipping departments. It's a fun job where I get to talk to a lot of people from all over the United States, which allows me to improve my interpersonal communication skills, and every once in a while I get to talk about geology with some of the customers.

However, I do not see myself working behind the tasting bar the rest of my life. I am interested in pursuing a career in the environmental consulting field and have spent a lot of time applying to jobs, but nothing has worked out so far. If any alumni know of any leads or connections which could help me achieve my career goals it would be greatly appreciated.

I hope all of all the professors and students back at CWU are doing well.
