CET will begin recruitment for our next cohort of EcoFellows on January 1, 2018!

We are seeking five energetic, passionate college graduates to join our professional staff to help people and businesses conserve energy and reduce waste. The EcoFellowship is an 11-month paid fellowship program that gives emerging environmental professionals the opportunity to support CET’s initiatives to assist residents, students, institutions and businesses across the region in energy efficiency, green building, renewable energy, and waste reduction.

The EcoFellowship offers a two-week training and orientation about our organization and the programs we run. During this orientation, the EcoFellows also take part in professional development activities that explore environmental topics that will benefit the EcoFellows and reinforce the work that they will be helping with. Throughout the EcoFellowship, the fellows are offered in-depth career development and support from supervisors and mentors. The EcoFellows are based out of CET’s Northampton office, with travel expected between CET locations and into local communities.

At CET we make green make sense. As an EcoFellow, you help us create measureable impact. EcoFellows work cross-organizationally, and are also given specific areas of focus:

Building Science

Shadowing Projects | Professional Trainings | Content Generation and Case Studies

Program Operations

Waste-Reduction Program Assistance | Energy-Efficiency Trainings | Impact Reporting


Social Media Management | Video Production | Graphic Design | Content Generation

Community Outreach & Education
