Saturday, May 30, from 1:30-5:00pm EDT online via Zoom

Our Green Career Workshop will provide you with insights on your career strengths and preferences and how these can be tailored for application to the new “green” economy, e.g., clean energy, sustainability, circular economy, resiliency, etc.

It provides experiential activities designed to guide you in developing an actionable career plan.
Registration includes a workbook with exercises and resources.

​In this workshop you will:

  • Complete activities that guide you in identifying your core career assets – your strengths, skills, abilities, and knowledge – that you can offer a potential employer
  • Begin to develop a career plan appropriate for your career level
  • Network with fellow Leaders in Energy members who can be a career resource for you
  • Engage in group discussion about the market needs and trends around your career in the Green Economy

We will network with others about our mutual career journeys, focus on what inspires you about the Green Economy and the marketplace needs/opportunities right now, discuss your work values as they relate to your career needs, begin to develop a career plan, and identify the next steps you need to take on your career goals.

2) Green Career Workshop 2.0: What’s the Best “Fit” for Your Career Path?
Saturday, June 13, from 1:30-5:00pm EDT online via Zoom

This workshop builds on the insights and practices from the Leaders in Energy Green Career Workshop 1.0 and we encourage you to take this workshop as a prerequisite, although it is not required.

Participants will be asked to bring their Green Career Plan, developed in the Green Career Workshop, as a foundation for the Green Career 2.0 workshop.

You’re on the path to landing the Green Job you want. Career assets identified — check. Green economy sectors that you want to work in — check. Green career plan — check.

But it’s not enough to have a plan — taking action is key to making your Green Job a reality. Our Green Career Workshop 2.0 provides you with tools to guide you in the next step on your actionable career plan.

In this workshop you will:

  • Identify your specific area or areas of specialization as a Green Leader
  • Complete activities that guide you in identifying the technical, managerial, and individual leadership competencies – the knowledge, skills, and abilities – that you need to be successful in your area or areas of specialty
  • Develop, or further hone, a strategy for moving your career along your chosen career path, based on your career level
  • Identify how to assess potential employers on a five-part scale for “fit” with your career path
  • Network with fellow Green Leaders who can be a career resource for you
  • Engage in group discussion about the context around your career as a Green Leader
  • Review useful resources

We will network with others about our mutual career journeys, focus on what inspires you as a Green Leader and the marketplace needs/opportunities right now, and identify the next steps you need to take on your career goals.
