Pounding the pavement is hard on the feet and with the current economy there is a lot of competition! So, why not consider getting a little green around the collar when searching for potential career options? After all, that’s how I ended up starting Eco-Office Gals and our new President Obama has hope that green collared jobs will keep Americans working and help the economy.
The best advice I can give is this: figure out what it is you know how to do, do well & love doing! After that the world is the limit, you’re no longer restricted to your local classified ads. There are great green job boards online to help you grow virtually, often from the comfort of your own home! Here are some great links to help you explore your green collar career option:
