Good, "Green" Jobs: A No-Nonsense Guide to Environmental Jobs and Careers
National Environmental Education & Training Foundation
With sustainable business practices on the rise in many companies--and in many business schools--the question looms large: How do you land an environmental job in a company, agency, or other organization? First the bad news: traditional environmental jobs in big companies are on the wane. Many companies are cutting back on their environment health and safety staff. The good news is that many companies are integrating environmental thinking into other parts of their operations--into manufacturing, facilities management, procurement, accounting, finance, marketing, sales, legal, and communications--creating new job opportunities and career paths. More often than not, the environmental aspects of these jobs are hidden. That is, the jobs aren't advertised as "environmental." Rather, companies with strong commitments to environmental responsibility are looking for job candidates who "get it"--who understand the opportunities for environmental initiatives to add value to companies through decreased costs, increased sales, new market development, reduced risk, increased quality, and other means--and who can seamlessly integrate those goals into their everyday jobs. It's these "stealth" environmental jobs that are the growing opportunities for job seekers at every level. In this document, you'll find some of the many resources to help you find the right fit for you--and your values.
