Why	do	you	want	an	environmental	job?	
	 Rick	Reibstein,	Environmental	Law	and	Policy,	Boston	University,	10/17
Ruth	Brody
REASONS
	 Things	are	screwed	up	and	you	want	to	be	part	of	
making	them	better.	
	 	 The	number	one	reason	I	hear	by	far.	
	 You	think	you’d	be	good	at	it.			
	 It’s	fascinating.	
	 The	number	one	thing	I	think	people	find	out.
Moral	Clarity
Some	environmental	jobs	can	be	anti-environmental	in	
intent	or	effect.	
If	you	know	what	your		
purposes	are,	you	will	be		
more	aware	of	where		
you	need	to	go,		
where	to	draw	the	line,	
when	to	stand	up,	
how	much	to	risk	for	what.	
Moral	clarity	is	of	central	importance.		It	is	a	guide	to	
what’s	needed.	It	is	your	greatest	resource.
Where	are	the	jobs?
	 1.		Many	have	been	developed.		Network.		Develop	the	skills	for	
those	jobs,	learn	their	languages.			
	 2.		You	should	also	look	for	what’s	needed	that	has	not	already	been	
developed.			
	 Environmentalists	are	often	entrepreneurs.		
	 Because	things	are	screwed	up	many	environmental	jobs	should	exist	
-	but	don’t	-	yet!		You	may	be	able	to	participate	in	creating	them.
Three	categories	of	environmental	jobs
1. The	kinds	already	developed	
			
2. The	new	kinds	you	and	others

like	you	with	talent	and		
	 conscience	and		
	 dedication	will	create	
3.		The	job	that	is	about	doing	something	else	
primarily	but	which	integrates	environmental	
values
Environmental	Jobs	of	the	First	Kind
➢ Nonprofit	environmental	groups	
	 -		Choose	your	issue!			
	 -			Come	in	many	sizes.	
	 -			Stellar	qualifications	help.		Energy	and	devotion.	
➢Government		
	 -	Classic	jobs:	inspector,	planner,	scientist,	manager,	communicator,	
	 statistician,	legislative	aide:	city,	county,	state,	federal,	international	
	 -		May	get	to	directly	work	on	reducing	impacts	
	 -		Pent	up	need!		When	US	rejects	the	rejection	of		 	
responsibility…	
➢	Corporate	
- Internal	compliance,	regulatory	affairs	
- Communication,	planning	
- Sustainability,	product	development
