  IN THE PRIVATE SECTOR

It is no secret that the government is downsizing. Private sector companies are doing the natural resources work under contract, that used to be done by government employees. This means agency experience is valued in the private sector.

It also means that private companies will pay competitive wages, and provide the tools and training needed to accomplish the job. Private sector employment is often short term, particularly in the outdoor 'field' jobs. You can get paid to hike in the woods but it's hard to make a career of that. Job turnover can be high. You may move quite a bit, which can be challenging or exciting, depending on your outlook.

Since many families rely on two income earners, State Job Banks are good places to check out spousal employment opportunities. Unlike working for a government agency, those who choose the private sector will likely change employers several times over their career. That's not a criticism, it's an observation.

The private sector also provides opportunities for creating your own business. Maybe you have a great idea on how to resolve an environmental probem. Starting your own business could be the way to get that job done.
