Consulting job in Bridgewater

[[email from a former student!]]

Hello Dr. Rodenburg,

First off, I would like to say hello….you may not remember me, but I am a former student who graduated in 2011 with my BS in Environmental Science. Back then, my last name was Tufaro. I am now working in my field of study, so thank you for helping me get here!

My company is looking to hire some entry level staff, including environmental scientists, engineers and/or geologists. I was therefore wondering if you could perhaps distribute the attached job description to those students who are soon graduating and are actively looking for employment. They may visit our website at or contact me directly with any questions they may have about this position or our company. Also, please let me know if I should be getting in touch with another department or office for this sort of request.

Thank you, and hope all is going well for you!

Sarah J MacCarter
