Environmental preservation

I just went through this...really all the points which came to my mind are covered by you. No more additions are needed. If you bring this to practise, it will sound good.

Barry's Response - Air quality modelling. I do it for a living. Maybe you could make it your career if you find it interesting. Take physics, meteorology or engineering in university, then add some interdisciplinary studies or environmental sciences, and you'll be well prepared for a long and interesting career in the environment. Thank you, Srikirthiga. Good luck.

When it comes to find clients and jobs, here are some things to consider including on your resume:
  • Basic academic background e.g., physics, environmental sciences etc.
  • Air pollution meteorology
  • Models studied and used, such as AERMOD, CALPUFF, ISC and CAL3QHC
  • Prior professional environments including technical and peer review scenarios
  • Additional software development and/or customization
  • Hearings and Expert testimony
  • Preparation and evaluation of meteorological data sets
  • One-on-one consulting, technical advice and client service
  • Regulatory and legal consulting
  • International work
  • Professional associations - certifications, activities and memberships
  • Ongoing research and education

Career path example

Sometimes air quality specialists run client corporations' air programs. An individual with previous management experience and business success, plus technical skills like air pollution control device design, permitting, project management and emission calculations, might be interested in this kind of job. It's great if you've worked on other projects in the client's industry. Experience serving other projects in the client's industry helps greatly. Experience in the power, oil, and gas industry is a huge plus in Alberta, for instance.

Bottom line: Find your own path.
