Careers in Sustainability

A career in sustainability means doing work that promotes ecological balance, economic prosperity, and community equity and wellness.

At Portland State, hands-on experience gives students an edge securing jobs in emerging green industries. The Institute for Sustainable Solutions partners with PSU Career Services to educate and introduce students to careers in sustainability by helping students find their passions, discover their strengths, and gain experience through internships.

PSU Career Services posts hundreds of internships every year—many of them in areas related to sustainability.  Register on CareerConnect.
