    Amy Gomberg, an Environmental Advocate with the non-profit organization, Environmental Ohio (, will be conducting an online informational session regarding our full-time career opportunities and part-time student internships on Monday, February 18th at 7:00 p.m.

    During the online information session, Amy will show a short video about the organization and nationwide affiliates. Additionally, a live webcam overview of their job and internship opportunities will be presented, both for Ohio and across the country. Interested students will have the opportunity to schedule a one-on-one interview after the informational session. Environment Ohio usually has the resources to recruit from a handful of schools, but we have recently decided to utilize a new technology that will allow us to conduct online informational sessions with students from across Ohio.
