IEMA joined forces with the Guardian advice graduates on how to move into an environmental role.
On 17 January, IEMA’s director of membership strategy and development, Claire Lea, offered advice to graduates and others interested in securing an environmental role via an online webchat hosted by the Guardian.
Lea joined representatives from consultancies, recruitment organisations and industry charities on the panel of a careers webchat entitled “Ask the experts: breaking into the environment sector”. Lea was able to offer advice on the skills, development and training necessary to succeed in environmental roles.
Questions about qualifications versus experience and the value of volunteering were popular topics. Many also asked how Associate membership of IEMA could help them to stand out from the crowd, while others expressed an interest in how the networking opportunities available to IEMA members could help them meet others and keep their knowledge up to date. The chat attracted more than 230 comments, which remain online.
