Great opportunity for recent college grads

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsThe Student Conservation Association offers current students as well as recent college graduates the opportunity to work all over the United States. They gain stipend compensation as well as health insurance. Very interesting and well-known employment opportunities that look great on a resume.

ConsYou do not make a ton of money. The stipend is enough to live on for your time with the Student Conservation Association, but it does not leave much left for savings. And you can only hold the job for 2 years at most.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work!
