Shift Careers

One of the key pillars of Shift is to help you with your future career. Industrial Ecology is a very diverse study. You might have the impression sometimes that you learn a little about everything, but never become an expert at one topic.

That’s where the Shift Career Committee comes in! We connect you with the broader field of Industrial Ecologists and related careers, and empower you in your path towards landing a fulfilling yet meaningful job!

IE Career Database

Generations of IE students compiled a list of almost 200 companies which are IE related. So not only the big companies we all know, but especially smaller consultancy firms that might be looking for you! And if you did become an intern or employee, we want to invite you to share your experiences!

IE Events Database

IE courses are fun, but sometimes you want to do something else. Taking part in a challenge, going to a conference or becoming a board member. We created a database for a number of annual events to inspire you. We probably missed quite a few, so that’s where you come in. If you like to add a new challenge or something else to enrich the IE community, you can!
