Well, immediately…probably not. But that does not mean they aren’t valuable!
An analysis of data in member profiles by LinkedIn shows some interesting trends in career training, specifically–how many internship opportunities are available in various fields and the frequency with which full-time jobs are available after completion. When it comes to environmental fields specifically, the outlook seems a bit bleak: Few internship positions are available and few of them lead to full-time jobs.
But don’t let that deter you from taking part in an environmental internship if it is your area of interest or passion. The skills and experiences you gain can still lay the path for a successful career in your field. Moreover, the network you begin to build for yourself could be the difference between an organization choosing YOU over other candidates when those limited positions become available.
