We had a great turnout on September 19th for the Careers in Sustainability Panel at Northeastern. Co-hosted by the NU Energy Systems Society, USGBC MA’s Emerging Professionals, and the USGBC MA Greenbuild Volunteer committee, the event generated some great conversation from six stellar sustainability professionals.
Our panelists included: Alex Testa, Structural Engineer at Silman; Ryan Montoni, Project Manager at The Green Engineer; Blake Jackson, Sustainability Design Leader at Stantec; Lindsey Machamer, Senior Engineer at Pare Corporation; and John Gravelin, Project Manager at Linnean Solutions. The panel was expertly moderated by EPMA’s co-chair Aminah McNulty, Marketing Coordinator for Brown, Richardson + Rowe.
The panelists shared their unique experiences and varied career paths to their current position, the things they wish they knew when they started out, and tips for networking your way to your dream job.
Join us for more events like this one including: How to Network at Greenbuild coming up on October 26th at Boston University and consider registering today as a volunteer at Greenbuild to take advantage of some incredible sustainability career opportunities.
