Environmental Jobs Sites & Tips on the Job Search Process

Are you interested in obtaining a job or internship focused on the environment but not sure where to start? Yale’s School of the Environment has created the following page of Environmental Job Search Engines  which lists hundreds of sites.

How to Utilize Job Search Engines: Going beyond hitting the apply button

  • As you discover any search engines that fit your interests, be sure to sign up for alerts and set up filters so that the most relevant opportunities are sent directly to your inbox.
  • Job Sites can also be helpful in identifying employers that one may not have on their radar.
  • Keep in mind that applying to an internship/job is just one step of the process. It is just as (if not more) important to work on building target lists of employers you are interested in and finding contacts (Yale Alumni Network) at the places you apply.
  • Read about how to create a target list and the importance of Networking (think Informational Interviews) to help you understand the entire job/internship application process.
  • If you do apply through the job search engine, go one step further and look to network with a contact at that organization.
