I’m in college, about to start my senior year. I’ve been majoring in Environmental Science, but now I’m not sure what kind of career I can get with this. Any ideas? Or should I just change majors?

There is actually a large demand for this background in the industrial sector right now. Factories that are trying to comply with local and federal laws when it comes to safety and environmental impacts are finding themselves needing to hire management positions to oversee these things, and an environmental science degree is highly sought after. Energy companies also have a need for this position as they attempt to reconcile providing for their customers’ needs and also having a beneficial impact on the environment around them. There are also plenty of research and academic positions that can be obtained with a degree like this, too, especially if you go on to a post grad program.
