        The purpose of this study is investigation of the employment status of environmental and health graduates in Karaj Municipality. In the first step, frequency and frequency percentage of all employers at three levels of completely related fields of education (including environmental science and environmental health), semi-related fields of education and unrelated fields of education were investigated in three groups of central headquarters, organizations and regions according to the information received from the planning deputy of Karaj municipality. In the second step, the relationship between education and work responsibility of experts and heads of the responsible departments for environmental protection was investigated. The results showed that only 1% of the total personnel of Karaj Municipality have a specialty in completely related fields of study and 3.1% of them were graduates in semi-related fields of study. Only 8 (16.3%) of the 49 personnels with completely related fields of study, have been employed in their education-related responsibilities. The results also showed that only 5 (42%) of 12 heads of the departments or responsible personnels for environmental protection have education in completely related fields of study and only one of them were graduates in semi-related fields of study. This fact indicates the lack of attention of municipal managers to the existing organizational chart and non-regulation of the responsibilities distribution especially in the environment and health field. Based on the research results, reviewing and modifying the process of personnel recruitment and using managers and experts with a relevant specialty in the Karaj municipality is necessary as the first prerequisite for managing and preserving the environment to achieve sustainable development.
