Webinar | How to become competitive for conservation jobs

Does it seem like conservation jobs have a million requirements? Are you worried that you'll have to spend ages getting experience or training to be competitive - even for entry level roles? Are you tired of submitting applications with zero feedback?


We asked our conservation community about the biggest barriers they face to working in conservation - and 'Becoming competitive for conservation jobs' was one of the top challenges.


But what if there were a simple process to become competitive for the jobs you want?


In this webinar we guide you through our proven process to become competitive for conservation jobs, used by 1000s of people over the past 10 years at Conservation Careers. 


We've helped 100s of aspiring conservationists and career switchers land their dream jobs... and now it's your turn!


You'll walk away with the tools to create a clear, complete action plan to secure the job you deserve.

  • The importance of having a target job. Learn why most people fail to become competitive for conservation jobs and what to do instead.

  • How to complete a gap analysis. Identify the experience, skills and knowledge you need to become competitive.

  • How to fill employability gaps. Create an action plan to become super employable for your chosen role as quickly, easily and cheaply as possible.
