My son has been an Environmental Engineer for 9 years. He works for a large multi-national corporation. He's happy with the compensation, but both he and I agree that entertaining other possibilities is at least worth a look.

He's bright and very pragmatic. Dedicated. Responsible. Great attitude and a no-limit person. Wise beyond his years. Articulate.


1. What are some other environmental avenues he could consider (other than competing directly with large firms) that would translate into a worthwhile pursuit in terms of compensation and the freedom to be your own boss and grow your fledgling company? Are there environmental specialties/concentrations that are in demand that have possibly been overlooked and hold potential?

2. What non-environmental endeavors are good cross-over professions for someone that's been immersed in the environmental world for 9 years?

Thanks in advance...
