Cleantech and sustainability jobs are fast-growing segments of the economy. Have you been inspired by others working in these fields? Are you looking to land, create, pivot into, or move up into your dream green job? Is this your year to land the job you’ve been dreaming about?
These workshops provide key insights on career strengths and preferences and how to tailor them to the growing green economy, e.g., clean energy, sustainability, circular economy, resiliency, and more. They are appropriate for people with diverse skills such as technical, managerial, communications, and policy.
This is an important time to move into a Green Career as our economy piovts following COVID-19. We can see many ways that the Green Future we envision is possible today.
Reports such as “The 2019 U.S. Energy & Employment Report” and “In Demand: Clean Energy, Sustainability and the New American Workforce” identify important trends and skills for the 21st Century clean energy and sustainability workforce and economy. Policy proposals such as the New Green Deal as well as clean energy initiatives in numerous states are also spurring developments on low-carbon, smart, and resilient infrastructure. The Fourth National Climate Assessment and IPCC warn that the window of time is closing fast to prevent widespread dangerous effects from climate change.
