Land Trust or Preserve Managers

Advancement Prospects

There are three general advancement paths for land trust professionals. The traditional promotion path might begin with an internship, then progress to positions of increasing power and responsibility. The second path involves expansion of duties within a specialty field. For example, someone who starts out as a land protection specialist in North Carolina may not have any desire to move out of that work; therefore, his or her job may be expanded laterally—broadening into consulting work in the specialty in other parts of the state, or even nationwide. Third, a person may opt for a "demotion"—getting back to land protection and conservation fieldwork, for example, after having served in an administrative position.
