You graduated from an environmental engineering program, bachelor's or master's degree in hand. What was your first degree-related job, and was it what you expected?

I'm looking at a career in civil or environmental engineering, and while there's plenty of info on the civil side of things, the environmental side has been a little more nebulous; general talk of water systems or environmental monitoring, little in the way of specifics. Looking to get info on what, exactly, an environmental engineer is likely to do, particularly in the first 1-5 years post-graduation. I'm particularly interested in any work you may have done in an urban environment, either for a government entity of some kind, or a non-profit (are there non-profit C/EEs?)
