Colton Reed January 23, 2014 Period 6/7
Weiser’s SAE My SAE was working over the summer at Weiser’s farm market, and greenhouses. I worked 7-5 from Monday to Friday. My job was to pick fruits and vegetables. I also did maintenance on the greenhouses and stocked shelves and cashiered in the stand.
Hillandale SAE My SAE was working at Hillandale Gettysburg LP chicken farms I unload chicks from the truck into the chicken house then put them all into cages. After that is done I load all the bins and put them back on the truck and check the water and shut the cages. I hope to get a steady job there but by putting chicks in I have made some money.
Career #1 Environmental Scientist An environmental scientist’s job is to do research to protect the environment. This can mean researching things like pollution, hazards, and any problems with the environment. Global warming or water contamination to a river might be something they would research.
Education At least a Bachelor’s Degree in Natural science or a related field; a master’s would be most ideal. Cost of the tuition would vary by school but would cost close to $25,000 per year. Some good nearby schools that interest me are Penn State, Cornell, Syracuse, and Delaware
Wages and outlook The median pay is 61,700 or about 30 dollars an hour. There are about 90,000 current jobs and that is expected to rise 19% by 2020 which is excellent. Environmental scientists are employed by Federal, state and local governments. Private firms and companies as well as universities employ them.
Working conditions Most of the time Environmental Scientists are in a lab or office doing research or publishing there findings They do spend time out in the field collecting samples and specimens. I would want to stay somewhat local for my work but I would be okay with going to a bordering state. A possible place to be employed would be in D.C. or a university
Classes Classes like Biology, Chemistry, Plant and animal sciences, and probably most sciences for that matter Mathematics and English would also be very important A foreign language would be helpful
