Alumni Careers

Every year, Conservation Leadership creates an alumni survey in order to receive feedback about the Conservation Leadership program and requests information about jobs and responsibilities of our alum. This gives us a good idea of where our former students end up. This is a common question among applicants, and also a helpful metric to measure our effectiveness as a program.

Here is a pie chart of alumni jobs by sector based on the results of our 2018 alumni survey:

Please see the table below which includes the names and contact information of alumni from our last three cohorts who are willing to talk to prospective students about the program and job tips.
