I recently had the opportunity to learn more about CareerEco and found it to be a great source of information for people who are interested in finding a green job. CareerEco focuses on job employment for those who are interested in having eco-minded careers. There is a growing desire among job seekers to be using their talents to help both the environment and economy, especially for younger job seekers such as college grads. In this day and age young adults are learning more and more about how important it is to be eco-minded, which gives all the more reason to have a job that thrives with that mindset.
The founder and CEO of CareerEco, Gayle Oliver-Plath, was interviewed on CNN where she provided some quick tips on how to get your foot in the door for green jobs. In her interview, she suggests doing what you can to get an internship in a green company. Getting a foot in the door is a good first step. She also recommends that job seekers get involved in professional associations focused around green jobs and eco-minded careers. The helps job seekers, especially college grads, build a network with people who are involved in eco-minded industries.
