Environmental Planners

Advancement Prospects

Environmental planners can advance to become senior environmental planners, handling larger and more complex projects. With years of experience, they may become managers or directors, overseeing the work of more staff members or more departments or regions. Planners who are on staff with companies may leave the position to start their own environmental planning businesses. They may provide consulting services to other companies and take contract jobs with agencies. Another path of advancement may lead planners back to school, to teach environmental planning in colleges and universities. They may also share their knowledge by writing books and articles about the subject, and participating in speakers' panels at professional association conferences.
