For all you graduates out there, post your degree and what your career path has been since graduating. There are a ton of things I've learned that I wish I knew before college so let's share with all you younger folk of NS.
Environmental Science - Very versatile degree with potential for super fun work BUT expect low pay, and nearly impossible to get a permanent position without AT LEAST a Master's degree. Grad program are extremely competitive to get into. Be prepared to be 1 of 100 + applicants for either one grad fellowship, or even a temporary tech position that pays $10/hr for 4 months.
Recommendations for this field: Take more challenging classes in stats, population modeling, GIS, math, and field biology. More interdisciplinary classes in env. philosophy, ethics, policy, etc are really interesting and good to know in the long run, but will not equate to a job post college.
I've been out of college for a few years now and haven't been able to find a gig longer than a few months on end. I'd consider making a career change at this point.
my 2 cents. Go at it!
