Jobs & Internships

IMG_0721When starting your senior job search, please consult with the Colorado College Career Center to access additional resources for finding job opportunities and learn how to best prepare for your job search, particularly your resume and the interview process.

Contact Sharon Johnson to obtain logon information to read special employment options from ECO (environmental career opportunities on-line).  Contact Kyra Wolf to see results from the 2015 Alumni Survey for more information about employment opportunities from within the CC network.

A wonderful resource for EV students starting their career search is the Green Careers Resource Guide, which describes the many job opportunities in Environmental Science and Policy. 

Please view the Jobs/Internships posting board on the first floor of the Tutt Science Building in addition to the links below.
