EMPOWER students learn about environmental consulting

Four environmental consultants, from four different companies, fielded questions from EMPOWER trainees for about 2 hours earlier this month. In addition to better understanding the types of projects that consultants might work on, students learned about billable hours, the technical skills they would need to work in consulting, work-life balance as a consultant, and opportunities for advancement within a company. As one trainee noted, “the panelists were great…[they] would make great contacts for people interested in the field.”

EMPOWER thanks the consultants for so generously spending their time with us!
