If you’ve visited our about page, you might have noticed that I (Willy) am a fisherman – a fly fisherman to be more precise. Those of you who are unfamiliar with fishermen might think that sport fishing has a negative impact on the environment, but the opposite is typically true. In fact, sportsmen often make the best conservationists – mostly because they have a vested interest in protecting the resources that are necessary to the enjoyment of their sport. For this reason many conservation organizations have been formed by groups of sportsmen. One such organization is Trout Unlimited, which aims to conserve, protect, and restore North America’s coldwater fisheries and their watersheds.
One of the cool things about Trout Unlimited is how much participation goes on at the local level. Whether it’s a stream clean up, a restocking of a native strain of trout, or Trout in the Classroom, the local chapters use their own resources as well as those supplied by the national organization to improve local coldwater fisheries. TU may be an environmentalist organization, but it brings together people from a wide range of backgrounds and political persuasions to accomplish a greater good. I’ve been going to TU meetings since I was a little kid, and although I may not always agree with the national organization’s stance on some issues, I support Trout Unlimited because of the work they do. With that bias out in the open, let’s get to jobs at Trout Unlimited.
Currently there is only one entry-level job opening at Trout Unlimited, but it looks to be a good one. They are currently looking for a Development Assistant / Assistant to the President (this position is no longer listed, so we’ve removed the dead link). This position will have some administrative responsibilities, but will also play a big role in fundraising. You’ll also be working at the top levels of the organization, which has to be great for networking. If you’re a new grad who loves fly fishing and wants to get into development or fundraising, take a look at this job. If you’d like to apply for an unlisted position, there’s no mention of how to do so. We recommend that you use TU’s contact form to let them know of your interest.
Note: On April 27th we revisited entry-level jobs at Trout Unlimited.
