Your Personal Networks

Remember the power of connections and the many resources available to you through your academic affiliations and other groups of which you are a part.

College/University Resources

  • The career counseling center can help you find contacts of alumni who work in fields or for organizations of interest.
  • Many academic institutions run alumni groups around the world or have affiliated Facebook or LinkedIn groups where alumni share job postings.
  • Ask your professors about job boards/job search resources they recommend or newsletters/listservs to which they subscribe that may help expand your knowledge and introduce you to relevant communities of interest.
  • ENSP alumni resources

LinkedIn

Conservation and environmental sciences professionals know the power of partnerships and are often open to sharing knowledge and advice with like-minded peers. You're often one connection away from colleagues in your dream role, so consider reaching out for introductions and informational interviews.

 

Partner Organizations

This list is by no means exhaustive, as there are countless organizations with different areas of focus to explore—each with their own careers web page. Here is a short list as a starting point.

 

 Special thanks to our colleagues at the Audabon Society for providing this list for us!
