The air quality field keeps growing and more people work in it each decade. People with the right scientific credentials may pursue careers off the beaten path, and these careers may include government and institutional jobs.
Are they easy to find? At times, and sometimes new graduates need to look elsewhere. Consulting companies offer this kind of employment. Check a few of these companies out if you know someone looking for work in these areas.
There could be a pleasant surprise waiting for the right applicant.
Credentials are important, obtaining a degree in the right discipline demonstrates a commitment to activities similar to those usable on the job in a consulting firm. Other attributes greatly enhance that basic set of qualifications. Experience, existing clientele and marketing capabilities make potential applicants worth even that much more to an organization of this type.

Here is a situation worth considering, as it could present a great opportunity. An industrial production firm with a stable workforce now faces new legislation requiring technical expertise beyond the present job descriptions. Someone has got to train those people.
Air quality, environmental management systems, regulatory compliance and risk management are not trivial things. Nor are they particularly simple. But they need to be done regardless.
Who can better train the industrial employees, other specialists and even government staff better than the consultants who perform these tasks on a daily basis? Most of the principles you would learn in this kind of training easily transfer from one industrial discipline to another. Therefore, if you are scheduled to attend any training course, it is probably well worth your while.
Some Examples of Job Descriptions
We need standards. We have standards. EHS Management Systems to satisfy ISO 14001 Standards. ISO 14001 applies to any organization in manufacturing and production, as well as service-providing companies.
Good systems provide useful manuals and handbooks, as well as documented procedures for the Air & Waste Management Association. Documents are only useful if the people look at them, so they need to be readable and easily searched to find your needed information.
Some consulting firms train industry personnel in implementation of EHS management systems. More extensive training may include regulatory compliance, environmental awareness, as well as health & safety awareness.
What about emergency response plans? Industrial firms such as oil and gas operations need ERPs to meet government requirements. Communities containing these industries need to be prepared to respond to potential accidents, chemical and otherwise. For the peace of mind of residents, if nothing else. That is where the emergency response plan comes into play.
What things do industries have to do to control their environmental impact? They implement careful project management for one thing.
Environmental impact assessments assist oil companies, for instance, in anticipating and preventing undesirable effects on the surrounding area.
A good plan requires coordinating information and objectives from several special interest groups simultaneously. If things are done consistently and thoroughly, you have a decent start to a successful plan. One that satisfies the interests of all stakeholders.
