Hello everyone. I am checking in from WA State. I graduated Cumma Sum Laude in Feb with a BS in Environmental Science, Fish and Wildlife Management. Thanks to the pandemic, I have been unable to do volunteer work locally to gain any experience. The few places near me have closed. I am 51 with a household and bills so I cannot quit my current job to do unpaid internships or volunteer work. Hence, I am struggling to try and find any type of employment in the field. I am hoping to make some connections here to help facilitate that.I am looking to switch fields after spending 22+ years in IT to do something to help make a difference in the state of our planet. I would love to go into education or species conservation either in the US or abroad. Though I would like make an impact abroad a bit more.My hobbies include computers, some gaming, and taking care of my niece's pregnant horse.
