Hi, Rick. My fiancee and I just moved to the Space Coast recently and she's having an incredibly hard time finding work in her field with an MS in Ecology. She really wants to work with aquatic life, but the offerings here are much more sparse than anticipated, even for volunteer work. What actions would you recommend to an ecologist that's new to an area, with no local connections, that would improve their chances of finding a career in the field?

Thank you for the advice. She has been trying to find volunteer work, but even that has been difficult.

Thanks! I just checked them out and it looks like she may be able to volunteer with them.

She has been scouring the internet without much success. It seems like most opportunities are rather far away, unfortunately. I will tell her to look for local conferences and events in addition to job posts. Thanks!
