FREE ENVIRONMENTAL RESOURCES
Over the years EJN has developed a number of resources that people can benefit from free of charge. In this section of our site, there are publications on environmental career paths, salaries and job profiles in a guide, leaflet and poster format that you may find useful.
Although some of these guides were produced a few years ago, they are still very useful to assist with decisions when embarking on a career in the environmental industry.
This is because each report builds on the last. For example, The 2010 Guide to Environmental Careers in Australia updates and builds on the 2004 Guide to Environmental Careers in Australia.
Also, to help you learn about and access the networks and information you should find useful in finding and developing your green career, we list a number of networks and websites that you can access.
This section of our website also contains information about Environmental Graduates, Environmental Apprenticeships, Environmental Volunteering, Environmental Consultancies and Environmental Recruitment Agencies

This 2010 guide provided a base for the 2016 survey and can be found on our publications page. These resources provide helpful information about environmental careers in Australia. Reading this report will allow you to learn exactly what people do day to day in the various environmental sustainability careers options.
