In my job search, I've seen a lot of opportunities in the environmental field but they are aimed at engineers. Environmental engineering offers more opportunities than an environmental science degree.
I pursued my Masters in Environmental Management after getting a BS in Environmental Science because I had trouble getting a job with just a bachelors degree. With a Masters, I've been able to work for state government and organize recycling programs for nonprofits. I just switched careers from the environmental field to risk consulting.
Having an environmental degree has made me marketable, but I have had to explain my degree and my skill set in depth in interviews.
