Social Media

If you have social media, it can also be a great way to find environmental jobs easily. For twitter, follow organizations like: work cabin, Parks Canada, Ducks Unlimited, Nature Conservancy, etc. For facebook, you can ‘like’ Work Cabin and any of the other organizations listed above. You can also ask to join the “Jobs in Environmental Studies and Ecology @ UVic” group (it’s great!).
