Last month's presentation of the IEMA Graduate Award (sponsored by Land Securities) recognised the early-career talent, skills and achievements of winner Heather Poore and runners-up Charlie Symonds and Laura Duggan.
The Guardian newspaper's Careers pages have also recognised the value of the finalists' collective knowledge and experience as recent graduates successfully entering the profession, going on to achieve real change. In light of the difficult Graduate careers landscape, Heather, Charlie and Laura have each offered their top tips to Graduates on how to give themselves the best chance of breaking into the environmental field.
Featuring realistic and practical advice, the Guardian article demonstrates the dedication, passion and tenancity it takes to operate and succeed as an environmental profession.

A discussion on Graduate skills versus what employers want is also taking place on IEMA's LinkedIn Group. Why not join the group to tell us what you think?
