Most kids beg their parents to take them to the zoo. Animals are exciting. They move. They eat. They make sounds. They smell bad. Plants have none of those appeal factors. Plants don’t move, they grow. They absorb their nutrients. They’re soundless. And they smell good (most of them anyways). To most kids that spells B-O-R-I-N-G. The zoo is an 86-minute comedy movie, while a botanical garden is 142 minutes of Academy Award winning cinematic genius. It might take a little growing up to appreciate plants for all they’re worth, but when you really start to observe plants, it’s hard not to start to enjoy their “personality.” Maybe that wasn’t the best way to start off today’s post, since there’s a good chance that those of our readers who will actually want these jobs have loved flora since they were old enough to crawl around their parents’ garden.
Hopefully the plant lovers have stuck with us, because the New York Botanical Garden is a non-profit with some great entry-level jobs. We’re not going to go into too much detail – you can do the research yourself, but we have identified three positions (Graphic Designer, Group Tours Assistant, Laboratory Technician) as extremely well suited for a new college grad. You can apply through their HR contact form which allows you to attach your resume.
The New York Botanical Garden’s website is great if you’re a potential visitor, but it’s a little lacking if you’re looking for deeper information about the organization itself. Their employment listings are hidden away in a menu that we nearly overlooked, and their job descriptions are contained in weird scroll boxes that make them pretty hard to read. Still, these are great jobs for anyone who is interested in botany or who just wants to be around flowers all day (if you love flowers, but aren’t looking for non-profit work, try ProFlowers).
Note: On April 27th we revisited entry-level jobs at New York Botanical Garden.
