What advise would you give to the current Aggies interested in entering environmental industry? 

Prepare by taking initiative, being involved, and proactively learning about careers in the environmental industry. Be a sponge, soak up as much info as possible from a variety of sources, and always keep an open mind to new opportunities. Ask yourself if this is something you can see yourself making a career out of and not just a job.

If you were entering the environmental industry today, what area would you pursue? Why?

I would pursue employment at a midsized environmental consulting company. Midsized consultants can offer diverse environmental industry exposure that may not be available at large or smaller companies. Always evaluate your options and utilize your experience to help determine which area(s) you would enjoy evolving into a career.
