More Information

A few tips:

  1. Don't disqualify yourself. Even if the company prefers climate experience, you could still be a great fit! They need quality talent and will oftentimes still work with you if you show your passion.
  2. Know the ins and outs. Climate companies priorities candidates that align with their mission. Do your homework and understand as much about the industry as possible.
  3. Do not be your own worst critic. Do not let imposter syndrome dictate your search. Network and pave your unique path based on similar professional's experiences.
  4. Always be networking. The age-old adage of "it's not what you know, it's who you know" is true in climate too. Join every slack channel or fellowship you can. Use Twitter and LinkedIn to your advantage. Tell everyone you know you're looking for a job in climate.
