Employment Resources

Looking for a Job?

We maintain a job e-mail group for job and internship posting information. Postings range from seasonal employment and internships, to mid-level, full-time positions and come from a wide range of industries including but are not limited to, non-profit organizations, local businesses, and municipal, state and federal agencies. We also send external funding opportunities as we receive them. We do not thoroughly screen each position, so you are encouraged to research the company or organization before applying.

If you are interested in joining this list, please send an e-mail to environment.program@umich.edu, specifying which e-mail account to which you would like these emails to be sent.

PitE has several resources specifically targeted to the environmental job search:

Reference Library

We have a bookcase full of career exploration books, environmental directories, and job search skills books. The books must stay in the office, but are available to you during office hours (8-5, M-F). Sample titles include:

  • Ten Steps to a Federal Job
  • Outdoor Careers
  • The Big Green Internship Book: Internships and Summer Jobs for the Environment
  • Resumes for Environmental Careers
  • Washington (DC) Internships in Law and Policy
  • “Environ.jobs” e-mail group*

You are invited to subscribe* to this e-mail group on the U-M directory. We forward to it all relevant job and internships that come to the office. At its busiest (January-March), we forward between 4-6 postings a day.

*To subscribe to the e-mail group, click on the "bind" button in the U-M directory. You will be asked to enter your UM uniqname and Kerberos password. Once logged in, type "environ.jobs" in the search box. When it takes you to the environ.jobs page, simply click the "join" button in the upper left corner. You have joined the list.
