Visit OrangeLink—ESF's online employment and career resources site for students & alumni!

Are you a recent graduate now pursuing advanced studies or beginning your career? The ESF Career Services website is a useful resource for you too!

Are you an alum who is well established in your field? If so, we invite you to become familiar with our services and to consider mentoring a current student. We hope you'll consider carrying on a tradition of excellence by hiring other ESF graduates.

What can the Career Services Office do for you?

  • Appointments and Office Services
  • Career Advising
    Perhaps your experience to date has helped you to better understand what you are looking for in a career. Perhaps your experience has also pointed out what you don’t want! Click here to check out some career planning inventories that might help you in deciding about that next career move.
  • Changing Careers
    We understand that not every first job is a perfect fit. We know that it can be hard to change your lifestyle, job and possibly relocate, but perhaps we can help.
  • Cover Letters, Resumes and More!
    Resumes are the traditional way to introduce yourself and your skills to a potential employer. Writing a solid resume is like a job, it takes time to master the skills necessary to grab the employer's attention. Click here and we’ll help get you started!
  • Interviewing
    Interviews can be stressful, time consuming and confusing. They can also be impressive, and leave a lasting impression! Here are some helpful hints to making sure you impress the employers.
  • Job Searching
    Now that you have your resume, cover letter, references, and your confidence is up, where do you go from here? You need to do some homework on employers, salaries and locations. Start here!
  • Graduate School Preparation materials
    The Career Services office holds a collection of resource materials to help students prepare for admission into graduate school. Students can learn about the application process, gain admission test information (GRE, MCAT, or LSAT), and utilize resources available.
  • Green Careers
    The label “green careers” is used regularly today, but is not well defined. The common understanding is that green careers relate to occupations and work which help build a more sustainable economy. This page brings together resources to help you land the GREEN job you are looking for.
  • Consider Mentoring a Current Student!
    Perhaps the best advice our students can get is from our alumni who are working in the very positions or fields to which our students aspire. If you would like to become a mentor to one of our students, please email us at
