Environmental Studies students enjoy a strong career support system with job postings, opportunities to meet employers, resources and advising available throughout the year.
Students find that many jobs listed as environmental often focus on education, advocacy or policy; however, graduates successfully pursue a wide range of career paths. We encourage students to explore their own interests and strengths as they progress through the degree. From this strong foundation, successful careers are made.
Meet Your Future
Meet Your Future is a quarterly event (panel discussions, Q&A, networking mixer) that brings working professionals into the student space. The discussions are hosted by Environmental Studies at the University of Washington. Students from Environmental Studies and related majors as well as alumni are invited to attend and interact with the professionals; a faculty member usually moderates the discussion.
The Winter quarter event brought together 5 environmental consultants to share their experience in the field of consulting, offer advice and answer questions. The room was full and the discussion was robust. Meet Your Future events are held during the second or third week of each quarter. For further information and to participate on a panel please contact Ana Wieman at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 206-616-2461.
The Spring quarter event brought together professionals in the environmental education field.
Next event: TBD – Fall 2016
