Here is a list of starting points for your summer job, full time job, internships….almost whatever in the career of environmental science.  While most of these websites focus on environmental science, some list a variety of jobs including things such as accountants, maintenance workers, nurses, lifeguards, advocacy.  This is by no means an exhaustive list, but you will find that many of these sites have links to other sites.  So if one particular site does not interest you, look at the links to other sites it provides. 
Good luck!


Environmental Internship Clearinghous

As an extension of the Campus to Careers mission, NCSE has created this environmental internship clearinghouse with support from the UPS Foundation. The clearinghouse enables university students to search for internships in the environmental field and provides a forum for internship providers to tap into a solid community of quality applicants.
