Conservation Career Advice

If you want a career in conservation then you are joining a competitive but very enjoyable and meaningful industry.  One of the best tips we can give you is to take a conservation internship, but take an internship for a minimum of 6 months, Fuze Ecoteer have employed many of their ex volunteers and interns in full time paid positions.  

The key to your internship is not only to learn skills but also to network. Networking and showing to your employer that you are passionate, hard working and able to work in a team are vital.  You want to put yourself in the mind of the management.  The reason is because when a full time position becomes available you want to be one of the first people they think about.  Plus the conservation world is very small and to get a recommendation from a fellow conservation leader is very important.

Secondly, I would recommend gaining a skill which is rare but useful.  Things like videography, photography and even think out of the box, skills and qualifications in risk assessments, sales and safety training are all very useful skills that conservation projects normally pay consultants or external trainers for.  If you can provide these skills at a lower cost you can move easily between projects.

Below is a video from Daniel Quilter one of the Fuze Ecoteer founders talking about his career in conservation.
