This module introduces students to the idea of green careers and what it means to be a sustainability professional. We break down the concepts of "green" and "sustainability" and encourage students to explore how the concepts could apply to their career.

The lessons include identifying potential green career opportunities and the skills, certifications, and credentials that can enhance a resume and improve a graduate’s employability. Students are then encouraged to explore their personal strengths and aspirations, define their personal mission statement, and then conduct in-depth research into their field of interest.
