information about careers
opportunities & internships, advice, jobs...
There's quite a bit of useful information on the web about internship and job prospects in math, science, and engineering. The links provided below are excellent resources in and of themselves, and should get you well on your way to finding additional information. Whether you're a graduate or undergraduate student planning further study, or someone who is contemplating career directions, we strongly encourage you to look around and get a feeling for the job market and what alternatives are available to you. The future is actually pretty bright for well-trained young scientists, but you do have to know the lay of the land. And don't be shy about talking to any EES faculty for their advice and opinions about career options and training.
