Marine Science and Conservation Careers is what we've been talking about for the past month and a half. I've heard some great feedback from people who are currently seeking out a career, so I am glad I've been able to help out.

This episode is all about the different options you have for your career. Do you want a career where you work a 9-5? Well, I go into the different sectors (non-profit, government, and private environmental consulting) based on my own personal experiences. 

Do you want a career where you work for yourself? I talk about that as well because I am preparing to do the same thing. 

I think this episode is a great way to sum up what I talked about in this series and what you can do in the future.  

Enjoy the podcast!

Continuing with helping you get a job to help you build your career in Marine Science and Conservation, I talk about The Interview today. The Interview is a way for the hiring manager and other committee members to get to know you and evaluate whether you would be a right "fit" for the workplace.

In today's episode, I talk about how to prepare for an interview, what your attitude should be during the interview and how it can help you get a job and how you should follow up.

The sole purpose of a job application is to get to the next step in the job-getting process. There are hundreds, sometimes thousands, of applicants and you have to set your aside apart from the pack. So what do you do?

You make sure that you have the best application out there and you ensure the human resource person and/or hiring manager are not forced to make any assumptions on whether you qualify for the position. For example, if you are applying to a position where you will be trawling and are required to identify species and record length and weight, then don't just say that you have experience with trawling, you should elaborate that you are able to identify fish species and some invertebrates (if you have the experience of course, never lie on your application!!!).

In this bonus episode, I teach you how to right the perfect resume that will force the person reading it to add you to the interview pile.

When I first started writing cover letters for the jobs that I wanted, I made them less than one page and they consisted of introducing myself and telling the person to which I was sending my application that my resume was attached. I had no idea that it was the wrong way of writing a cover letter.

It wasn't until a friend showed me how to write a proper cover letter that I was able to get interviews from my applications. The conversion was quite amazing. I applied to less jobs during the year (4 jobs) and got 3 interviews, which is better than the previous record of 1 in 400. 

Unfortunately, it was 6 years until I discovered how to write a proper cover letter and resume (I will discuss resumes next week) that I was able to focus my career path because I could finally get closer to the jobs I wanted. This style of writing cover letters is quite a bit of work, but your chances of getting the interview are much higher. 

Take a listen to the episode to find out how to write the proper cover letter for Marine Science and Conservation.

When I first started my career in Marine Science and Conservation, I searched for jobs everyday for 8 hours a day. No lie, I would check the same sites over and over again. It sucked. There were so many times were I wouldn't see new jobs and then I would lose hope. I got pretty emotional and angry. I was obsessed with getting a job. I would dream about it. Until one day, I figured something out.

I didn't want half of the jobs that I saw, but I was applying to all of them. I thought to myself, why in the hell would I apply for them. Why wouldn't I to everything that I could to get the jobs I wanted instead of doing a poor job in applying to jobs I didn't want. 

So I implemented 5 strategies to help me build my career and I continue to do so today:

1) Becoming an influencer in your field;
2) Keeping updated on the news, research, and happenings in your career path field;
3) Building Your Network;
4) Building Your Experience; and,
5) Get certifications pertaining to your field.

Take a listen to the episode for more description on each of the 5 strategies I still use today to build my career.

Attaining a sustainable marine science and conservation career is not easy. It takes focus, patience, and hard work. The first episode of this series gives you a breakdown on how to create goals for your career by setting your path. Now you need to start your journey down your path. Where do you begin?

As a recent graduate or someone who is shifting career, you probably don't have much experience in the career path field, which means your chances of getting a job is low. So this episode is dedicated to helping you gain experience through volunteering. 

Volunteering has its ups and downs. On one hand you can gain quite a bit of experience quickly. On the other hand, you may have to pay money to go far away to get that experience. Is there are problem with that...nope! If you can afford it, go because it's a great adventure and you do get some great experience even if it is short lived, but not everyone can afford to go away. They have to search for alternative methods of volunteering.

This episode will detail some steps you can take to acquire some great experience without having to pay money. This is important so remember, take notes!

Imagine that you apply for a job and when the hiring manager comes across your name, she/he already knows who you are because you worked hard at becoming an influencer within your niched within Marine Conservation and you did one hell of a job.

Many of your colleagues will apply to jobs and expect to hear back from an interview. If they qualify for the position and they demonstrate it on their application, then they will be able to further compete with others for the position. However, what happens after that point in the application process. You might have to write a test or attend an interview with everyone else who qualifies based on the same criteria. What can you do to set yourself apart from the rest of the crowd? Become and influencer.

If you are known within the public domain for your career interest, then you have impact power. If you have publications within scientific journals, then you have impact power. This means that not only can you do the work, but you can make that your project results reach more people because you have impact. 

I cover how you can become an influencer in today's social and tech savvy world that will help your career.
