Online Course | Conservation Career Kick-Starter

Biophilic Conversations in partnership with Conservation Careers (UK) invites applications from students planning to try and find work in the conservation sector, job seekers hunting for a conservation job but struggling, or career switchers who want to work in nature conservation, but don’t know where to start to attend an Online Conservation Career Kick – Starter Course.

Conservation Career Kick Starter Course

Our generation is on the verge where everyone can spark change no matter how small it may be. There are amazing conservation stories that do not get to see the light of day. These stories are only known among the selected few who already understand the conservation scene. However, man is a very important part of nature and with no natural resources which we depend on, we may not be able to survive. We have coexisted with the environment since the beginning of time and therefore getting more people to understand the importance of our environment and be part of the change is crucial.   

The Conservation Career Kick-Starter is a proven step-by-step system to get clear, get ready, and get hired in the conservation sector. No confusion. No ambiguity. Telling you EXACTLY what to do. Walking you through the entire process.

You’ll get a much clearer idea of the sector, the hot (and hidden) jobs, which ones are right for you, what experience and education you need, and how to apply for them, get interviews, and get hired.

After going through the course, you’ll have created a personal career plan which will finally give you confidence in your job search and will make everything quicker, simpler and more fun!
