Start by learning about the sectors that are included under the umbrella term of “sustainable development”. These include: conservation roles such as marine biologist and wildlife biologist, corporate roles such as diversity and inclusion director and sustainability manager, roles in public health such as environmental health professional and occupational health nurse, roles in research such as climate research associate, environmental economist or health economist, and even roles in engineering such as renewable energy engineer.
Then you’ll learn the basics of personal branding. Find out how to create an appealing online profile on platforms such as Linkedin, and learn how to craft a resume that will land you an interview.
You might have heard that the most successful job hunters network. But you avoid doing it because it seems intimidating. It really doesn’t have to be. We’ll show you just how easy networking can be, even if you aren’t comfortable meeting new people face-to-face. You’ll learn how to network with the specific purpose of creating opportunities for roles you’d love, at organisations you’d love to work with.
Finally, learn techniques for submitting an impressive application. We’ll also provide you with interview techniques that you can use when speaking to an employer offering you your dream role.
