Tip #3: Get educated.
Real-world environmental experience is an essential piece of a green resume, but it can only take you so far in the job market. A graduate degree in, say, conservation biology or forestry will set you on the fast track to a greener career. Tuition too expensive? For a cost-effective alternative, look for similar programs at local community colleges.
