Depending on how things shake out could be looking at working on the corporate sustainability side of big companies, I'm a manager at a research institute here that does a lot of corp sust stuff so I've got a good network at a few places
Tech has always intrigued/interested me but I lack any technical background, and non-eng internships are very hard to come by from what I've found
So basically I have no idea what field I'm going into haha
Ah, cool cool. I have some friends who ended up going down that path and really enjoy it, hopefully you enjoy Fermi problems and the interviews are going well for you!
Corporate sustainability is stuff like handling transparency, integrating with local community, and avoiding your brand image becoming Anderson Consulting?
Tech is (from my perspective) a weird combination of meritocracy, acceptance of non-traditional credentials, and knowing-a-guy-who-has-this-friend-who's-startup-just-got-funded-by-this-firm-who-needs-a-guy. If you've any talent for marketing or bizdev and have even a tiny portfolio, you might try looking at KPCB's Fellows Program, Greylock Venture's University Recruiting, or a16z's new uni program. Once you're in the fold, so to speak, it gets much easier to figure out the next step, and even if something doesn't work out the chances of getting a referral to somewhere that's a better match is high.
