The University of Michigan School for Environment and Sustainability (SEAS) is one of the nation's top graduate programs in natural resources and environmental fields. We are partnering with student groups, Students for Clean Energy and Net Impact to host a campus wide environmental and sustainability career fair. Last year 40+ employers and 600 graduate and undergraduate students participated from a wide variety of departments (SEAS, Ross Business School, College of Engineering, Ford School of Public Policy, Program in the Environment and many others).
What is a Green Career Fair? This fair is structured similarly to other career fairs, but with a focus on environment and sustainability jobs and internships.
Who can come to this event? All students! This is an opportunity for any interested student to pursue green internships and jobs regardless of major or minor.

Should I participate even if I am not currently seeking a job or internship? YES! The career fair is a critical opportunity to develop professional networking connections and to learn about employers that may interest you in the future.
Why work a "green job" With increasing concerns about climate change and environmental degradation in contemporary society, there is a demand for environmentally conscious careers. Applying your skills to an environmental position can provide fulfilling experiences that encourage sustainable thinking in future career paths and benefit the environment as a whole

The Green Fair can be a bit overwhelming. Use these tips from students to make the most of each day:
- "Be prepared to ask specific questions of different recruiters based on the research you've done on their company"
- "Go in with a game plan because the long lines can be disorienting"
- "Remember people's names from the companies you are interested in. It will make it easier to follow up with them in the future
- "I would have been less stressed out if I was more organized"
- "Come prepared and knowing what position(s) you are interested in. Most importantly, be able to explain why you're interested in it"
