Climate Change touches everything, but it can be hard to know how to match your interests, skills, and passions up as you consider your career.
This two-day UpNext: Climate Careers program seeks to demystify the many existing and developing climate careers and sectors. The event is open to all students in all majors.
Through this panel discussion and networking reception (as well as small group discussions on Friday, March 31st), students will get an insider’s understanding of the opportunities, available career paths, and roles and skills necessary to enter future jobs and internships.
Panelists will talk about current and emerging trends shaping opportunities to work on climate change and their implications. Students also get a first-hand look into the personal career paths of participating alumni.
