With this week being Earth Week, I thought going through some green career resources would be most appropriate. The biggest thing to remember is that the green economy is growing and constantly changing. If you really want to be a part of it, keep up with the current events, the changes, the trends, and the major players.
Here are some previous posts we’ve done on green careers that you might find useful and interesting:
- Resource Spotlight: Green Job Spider
- What are Green Jobs & Where Can I Find One?
- Our Green Careers Webpage with links to blogs, job/internship sites, green career information and local opportunities.
Another great resource to learn more about and keep up with the green economy is through Twitter! Increase your social media skills by connecting, interacting, and contributing to the green economy landscape.
