Opportunities in Environmental Careers.
Fanning, Odom
Pinpointing disciplines which will be required during the 1970's to solve environmental problems is one of the goals of this career book. Analysis of the manpower demands which will create new job opportunities in environmental management is presented. Written for a student or counselor, it gives a general view of what the main environmental problems are and what kinds of jobs are available for those interested in this field of work. Various types of careers and career levels within the field are presented under five categories: ecology, earth sciences, resources and recreation, environmental design, and environmental protection. Each field of environmental management defines terms, describes its scope, lists major activities, discusses the functions of specific types of practitioners, relates the field to a career ladder, outlines educational requirements, gives earnings and working conditions, projects employment demand to 1980, and lists major sources of additional information. Educational requirements and opportunities are highlighted with samples of two- and four-year curricula and lists of such institutions offering environmental training. Concluding remarks indicate that by 1980 the number of people employed in environmental management will double and there will be a severe shortage of trained men and women to fill vacancies. (BL)
