Environment, Energy, Sustainability, Food Production

Environmentally focused opportunities are found in many industries including law, medicine and public health, business, teaching, writing, conservation, energy production and exploration, and agriculture. Opportunities working in energy are diverse. Positions may be in the field, a research lab, or in a business role. One of the broadest areas of work within energy is consulting and advisory services, which includes topics as diverse as analysis on energy markets, geopolitics, industry trends, investment evaluation, technical delivery and accessibility issues, and strategy. Career paths within sustainability include universities, government, and the private sector.

Finding Internships

Internships in the environmental sector provide great training ground for students to explore the broad terrain of this field, from conservation, climate change, and sustainable development, to policy, advocacy, and government. Opportunities exist to focus on the scientific underpinnings of environmental issues (e.g. the science behind climate change), the business of environmental issues (e.g. developing a climate resilient supply chain) or the policy implications of environmental issues (e.g. legislation and advocacy seeking to minimize the impact of climate change).
