Environmental jobs

Are you a recent graduate looking for work or work experience in the environmental sector? Perhaps you’ve finished your MSc and are looking for work before taking up a PhD. Or perhaps you’ve just completed your undergraduate degree and want to get stuck into work straight away. Either way, check out these jobs sites for interesting geographical-related positions in the environmental sector.

When I see a particularly interesting job, I’ll post a link to it in the comments below – and if you see one, please also put it in the comments!

Twitter

Lots of interesting jobs are advertised on Twitter. It really pays to follow people and keep your ear to the ground. If you’re not on Twitter, get involved – even if you want to just passively follow people and have limited interactions. Some useful hashtags and people to follow:

Conferences and networking

Often, it’s not what you know, it’s who you know. If people know you’re looking for a job and they hear of one being available, they may pass that information on to you.
