Career Opportunities

According to Indeed: “In recent years, the market for climate change and sustainability jobs has grown considerably. This growth may be attributed to new developments in client science and society's increased awareness of how humans impact the environment.

“It's likely that this industry will continue to broaden as the need for active environmental conservation and policies geared toward sustainability increases over time. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the employment of environmental scientists and specialists is projected to grow 8 percent in the next 10 years from 2019 to 2029—a rate that is much faster than average.

“If you're interested in environmentalism, there are an array of careers to consider in which you can work toward addressing climate change. Depending on your specific interests, you may choose to work in a variety of roles."
