Learning Center Experience
By Lori Tripoli, Academic Chair, Environmental Policy and Management Programs
Advancing in an environmental career
can take many forms. If you are contemplating the next logical steps as you
progress in the field, you might first determine what “moving up” means for
your particular situation. Does that mean a higher salary, supervisory role, or
better title? More job responsibility or exercising more authority? More
industry recognition? Doing more directly for the environment?
Think about whether you want to
advance within your current organization or whether there may be more and better
opportunities for you elsewhere. Consider the individuals currently in the
roles that interest you, whether those are in-house or at other entities
entirely, and undertake a bit of competitive analysis. To assess the
capabilities of people currently serving in jobs that you would like to have,
ask yourself some of these questions:
Clearly, there are many variables
involved in advancing any career in the environmental field. You also need to
determine the risks that you are willing to take and the commitment you are
willing to make to move yourself ahead.
Determination, knowledge, and hard
work are only a few of the factors that that drive career success. Figure out
what else you need for the position you want, and then take steps to get there.
For instance, if you need better
speaking skills, seek out opportunities to improve them. If you need more
education, consider going back to school on a part-time basis while you hold
your day job. If you need management to notice your star qualities, volunteer
for additional assignments. In short, remember that you are the driver of your
own career. Don’t wait for someone to notice your existence. Do what it takes
to enhance your talent and then take action to propel your own career forward.
