SEED prepares students for job market with sustainability industry expert panel discussion

Sustainability is a growing and dynamic segment of the job market. As students leave the Faculty of Environment following their studies, they have the skills, and passion to establish themselves as the future leaders in this field.

But often what students need most, is inspiration and guidance, to get them moving in the right direction. To help students gain this perspective, the School of Environment, Enterprise and Development launched an event with senior sustainability practitioners sharing the story of their career, discussing what it takes to rise to the top, and then networked with students looking for career support.
