My daughter is interested in a career in environmental science or studies. What careers are available in the private sector and government?
The Career Doctor responds:
My best advice for you is to go to the Career Exploration section of Quintessential Careers where we have several resources including my favorite “what can you do with a major in …?” Websites.
Here is just a partial list of careers for graduates in environmental studies: agricultural scientist or technician conservation agent environmental analyst or technician EPA inspector forester laboratory analyst naturalist park ranger planner (urban or regional) teacher wildlife manager and writer — as well as many other careers.
One other good site is Environmental Jobs and Careers.
Finally you can find a collection of environmental job and career sites in the Jobs in Agriculture Zoology and the Environment section of Quintessential Careers.
