Getting Started in an Environmental or Climate Related Career

Wednesday September 23, 2020 7:00pm - 8:30pm

There are many careers with a focus on the environment and sustainability! Join us for this program to learn how Penn alumni got started in green fields, and how you can too! In addition to a moderated panel led by Dr. Alain Plante, Undergraduate Chair of the Earth and Environmental Science Department at Penn, this program will allow you to connect with alumni and strategically seek answers to questions about what skills are valued in these roles, and what the hiring trends will look like over the coming years. Bring your questions to this virtual event and get answers that will help you position yourself for the internships or jobs you are seeking as part of your professional and career development.
