Jobs in the Environment by Debra
The format of this book is wonderful: each left page
lists a job, duties, salary, prospects, education needed, etc.; each
right page tells the story of someone who has this job - how they got
it, what they do all day, where they see themselves going. The
information isn't in-depth, but it's certainly complete enough to help
you decide whether to further investigate a career. I definitely plan to
look at other "100 jobs" books for guidance as I try to figure
out what I want to do! -- Anonymous review
100 Jobs in the Environment has given me a knew perspective on my
career choices. As a college student my self and fellow classmates have
used this this book to guide our environmental careers. The author has
given the reader clear career descriptions and interviews with
successful environmental professionals. With each description of a profession
is information on where to get education and training on some of the
newest environmental jobs in the country. This book is so well liked by
my teachers and fellow students that I had to put my name on it. -- Anonymous
Yes -- the book gave descriptions, qualifications and
even starting salaries for 100 jobs -- but no examples of companies in
each area. There is a profile of a person for each job -- but again, no
company names are listed, only broad descriptions. I'm looking into a
career change and want actionable information...which for me this book
did not possess. -- Anonymous review
If you are seeking to be an environmentalist I recommend this book --

professionals and advocates to examine underlying economic issues related to environmental
sustainability and to promote public education on these issues. As a result of this
dialogue, the EWG developed a General Agreement on a New Economy, GANE, which suggests a
structure that would allow communities to move toward sustainability, equity and full

What holds us back are the millions jobs and the economic health of whole communities and
whole sectors of our economy that are currently dependent on military spending.
