Please note that while our course is designed with US-based environmental career seekers in mind, the job search strategies, resume and cover letter writing techniques, and interview preparation advice provided in the course can be beneficial to job seekers around the world. Keep in mind that some information, such as job search platforms and networking events, may be specific to the US job market and that we teach resume building rather than CVs. Nonetheless, we believe that our comprehensive program can help you achieve your career goals, no matter where you are located.
While we believe that our course can help you achieve your career goals, we cannot guarantee specific results or job offers. Success in the job market depends on a variety of factors, including the individual's skills, experience, and the current state of the job market.
Our course provides general guidance and advice for job seekers, but it is not a substitute for professional career counseling or advice. If you have specific career concerns or questions, we recommend consulting with a licensed career counselor or advisor.
