Environment & Sustainability

Welcome to Pitt’s Environment & Sustainability Career Community! This online community is designed to assist you with industry resources, career advice, resume samples, job and internship search information, networking opportunities, and events to help you explore career options in your field.

Students engaged in this field may have interests in environmental science and risk assessment; sustainability and resilience planning; governance and stewardship, including law and advocacy; landscape assessment and design; and how societies are influenced by the earth sciences such as meteorology and climatology, geology, and marine science.  Current issues and research have a great impact on career opportunities in this field, and our goal is to provide you with the most up-to-date resources available.

We look forward to connecting with you soon!  Schedule an appointment in Handshake or contact Ingrid today.
