Im looking to get the **** out of Massachusetts and out west. I am looking for jobs--primarily in Boulder CO, but am open to areas out of the Denver metro area (Boston traffic has made me nuts enough). Anyone have any advice? I have an MS in geology, and have 2.5 years experience in an environmental consulting/engineering firm.

I have applied to a few Boulder-area firms, and am looking to branch out. If anyone has any advice, Im all ears!

I am, of course, open to ski-town opportunities (ie., Ketchum, Jackson WY, etc), but I know those opps are few and far between...

Are you a hydrogeologist, with an interest in water resource consulting, I could offer a few recommendations. PM me. Cheers, Dan

Whoa! :shock: When it rains it pours! PMs/emails on the way (although I'm headed to VT for the weekend, so it may not be until Monday). Thanks for the responses!

some ideas

Hi!

I moved out of MA too...but western MA.

Some ideas:
there's LOTS of conservation organizations here:
- Colorado Environmental Coalition
- Colorado 14ers Initiative
- Rocky Mountain Field Institute
- Southern Rockies Conservation Alliance
- Glen Canyon Institute
- Four Corners School of Outdoor Education

There's also:
US Forest Service and Federal jobs (I've been watching and I see quite a few for people with environmental backgrounds)

And if you like working with/for kids, there's youth corps:
- Mile High Youth Corps
- Rocky Mountain Youth Corps

Also check
Orion Grassroots for openings:
http://www.oriononline.org and
http://www.ecojobs.com/

Those are a few leads!

Good luck!
