Career Resources

A concentration in EEB or Biology provides students with the competitive skill sets they will need in a diverse array of careers.

Many students go on to work in conservation and natural resource management, government agencies, biotechnology, healthcare, non-profits, forensic science, science communication and outreach, environmental consulting, teaching, parks and nature reserves, research labs, zoos, natural history museums, and ecotourism (to name a few). Many students also choose to pursue further education: graduate school for a MSc or PhD, veterinary or medical school, law school, business school, or public health programs.

The page is full of resources to help you find jobs, explore career options, build your resume, and gain experience!

Career Exploration & Development

Work-Study Program

The Work Study Program offers paid, on-campus positions that provide you with an opportunity to deepen your knowledge, strengthen your skills and explore how your academic studies translate to career possibilities. Login to CLNx to view positions in EEB and across campus. Positions are available during the Fall/Winter and Summer.

Gain Lab Experience

Volunteering or working in a research lab is a great way to gain practical experience. Read about the research going on in EEB labs to find out which ones interest you and contact the professors. It’s also a great idea to chat with your TAs and professors during class and office hours.
