Bachelor's in Environmental Science, GIS, or a related field.
This is my second job out of college, it's meant to be an entry level job to get a foot in the door to the environmental sector.
My day consists of collecting environmental data to send to clients in environmental consulting. This work includes, collecting aerial photography, fire insurance maps, and city directories. This data is collected with a combination of using ArcGIS and City Directories. Work usually gets done within an 8 hour day but during the busy season, it isn't unheard of to work overtime.
Overall, the job is pretty relaxed, work0life balance is pretty good and you aren't required to work overtime if you don't want to.
Employee parties, carry over PTO, work from home availability
The job can be mundane and repetitive. There isn't much room for growth. As this sector of the environmental industry grows, it will become more automated. Highly recommend learning coding to stay relevant and ahead of the curve.
Earning potential is pretty low for this job depending on the company you work for. Smaller businesses will pay less than larger competitors.
