Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This guide stems from the work of the Environmental Careers Organization, a national nonprofit group offering advice and the arrangement of short-term internships or other jobs for those seeking environmental careers. Since the first edition ( LJ 10/1/89), a new set of case studies and profiles of successful (generally very successful) environmentalists illustrate career possibilities. A major theme of the book is that on-the-job experience or even volunteer work is enormously important to someone trying to get her foot in the door of an environmental career. So is a proper education. The author is extremely well informed on career possibilities, offering statistics on salary, number employed in each job, and who is hiring. A person wanting a career in environmental planning and protection or natural resource management would certainly put themselves ahead of the game by reading this book.-- Sue McKimm, Cuyahoga Cty. P.L., Parma, Ohio
