  1. sir i am degree holder person in forestry. also 6 years expirences in plywood manufacturing industries.

  2. If you are fine with other requirements, I think you should try a luck and apply for above position. One of our fans on facebook, commented that there is no single word that this job is about forestry, and he is right. But, generally FSC specializes in forestry issues, so I think that your education and experience should fit their needs. All the best, Ayoub!
