Environmental Career Exploration Tour

Did you know that the Green Careers field will be hiring?  Did you know that networking is the best way to seek employment?

If you are thinking of a career in this growing field of sustainability and environmentalism, you should attend this tour!  The BC Alumni Association and the Career Center are co-sponsoring a program for career exploration and networking.

The Environmental Career Exploration Tour is a unique two-day event created just for BC students.  You would have the opportunity to tour and meet highly placed executives (many are BC alumni) of agencies concerned with environmental issues.  The program is in Washington, DC on Tuesday, March 3 through Wednesday, March 4.  You will be responsible for travel, lodging, and meals, but there is no registration fee for the program.

To attend, register through EagleLink Workshops for both the program and one of the mandatory orientations/informational meetings.  Two dates are listed — just sign up for the meeting that’s most convenient for you.

See flyer for more information.  This program is limited to 15 students (we will have a waitlist), so sign up now on EagleLink.  Send any questions you may have to theresa.harrigan@bc.edu.
