#14. 7 Steps to Find Your Wildlife Career Path

And Become Competitive for the Job You Want! 

This is a bonus episode! I recorded a webinar on Monday night to talk about my new Confusion to Clarity group. I realized that I had a Zoom audio file too and thought it would be a good addition to the podcast because even if you don’t join my group, it has valuable advice for those interested in careers in wildlife biology. 

When I looked for jobs after my PhD, I found out I was overqualified, yet not specialized enough for some of the jobs I wanted most.

My network didn’t help. In four cases, I did not get jobs that I interviewed for despite knowing working with someone on the hiring committee another candidate had more experience or a skill I did not have.

I LOVED my PhD research on elephants, but when I graduated, I found out there were very few jobs I was qualified for.

The secret to success in wildlife biology careers is to reverse engineer them.

In this episode, I go over 7 steps that I believe are essential for you to become competitive and find happiness. Enjoy!

I studied elephants for my wildlife biology career, but I found out there were very few jobs that I was competitive for when I graduated.
