Rillo, Thomas J.
A great deal of money and energy is going into the quest for environmental quality. The purpose of this paper is to point out to counselors some of the job opportunities available in the fields of conservation and recreation. The variety of programs directed to improving the condition of man, offer many opportunities to those who wish to become involved professionally in a direct manner. Advantages of careers in conservation and outdoor recreation include: (1) helping to solve challenging natural resource problems, (2) enjoyment of ones work in a profession where dedication is standard equipment, (3) working with people, and (4) seeing some accomplishment in making the world a better place to live. Disadvantages include: (1) lower pay, (2) necessity of passing the civil service examination, and (3) the need for some specialized education. The need for people as resource or conservation aides is great. Possibilities for advancement are good. A list of field work for aides is included. Similarly there is a need for outdoor recreation aides. Much study and effort is being made to incorporate subprofessionals into these fields as the need for them is growing quickly. (KJ)
