Careers

What the future holds ...

In the past ten to fifteen years, the world began going “green” with rapid speed. Concurrently, jobs in the Environmental Health Safety & Science field exploded. Couple that with the fact that most of the water/wastewater treatment operators are reaching retirement age, and you can see why this field has tremendous employment opportunites. 

  • Average projected growth 7.5% (2009-2014)
  • Average salary: $40,230 annually

Want variety? You've found it!

Environmental Science and Protection Technicians use samples from natural resources to show the level and sources of pollution in the environment. Sounds pretty important, right? So what kinds of duties will you be responsible for on the job?

  • You’ll be testing air, water, and soil for pollutants.
  • You could be regulating waste products.
  • You might be in charge of managing hazardous materials or the clean-up of polluted sites.
  • You could even be the liaison for businesses that need help complying with environmental regulations.
  • In short, your job is protecting the earth with your scientific knowledge and problem-solving skills!
