Intro to Conservation Job Search


One of the barriers to careers in conservation and the outdoors is the difficulty in accessing a strong professional network, to get that introductory knowledge, to get your foot in the door. In partnership with Children & Nature Network and The Wilderness Society, we will host a webinar and informational interview series designed to support just that: a strong career network for young, diverse leaders in the conservation and outdoor sectors.

Over the course of this series, we will be hearing from several staff of The Wilderness Society about their career path, the work that they currently do, and tips on how to get involved if it is a career you are interested in. Join our first conversation Monday, 3/4 at 4pm EST, as we begin to demystify the conservation job search process.

Topics include:

  • What to Look for in a Job Search
  • Networking Benefits and Tips
  • Informational Interviews Tips & Strategies

The introductory webinar will take place on Monday, March 4th at 4pm EST, followed by webinars throughout March highlighting a wide range of possible careers in conservation including philanthropy, policy, community engagement, communications, and science/research.

After you learn about possible career paths, you will then be able to sign up for one on one informational interviews with TWS staff during April to talk through pursuing careers of interest. Future job postings at The Wilderness Society will then be made more explicitly available to you so that you can apply if interested, with a new level of internal networking and connection.
