Green Careers - Make a Difference
Career Choice: Posted 20-4-10 Deadline - No Deadline
With concerns for the environment bringing a greater awareness and the introduction of many new environmental regulations, there’s no doubt that the colour of the future is green. More and more jobs will be created to help people adapt to these changes and a whole new industry is opening up, so if you want to be a part of the green revolution, read on. Green careers contribute to a more sustainable world. They can include a wide variety of jobs and occur in most industry sectors. Examples of green occupations include park ranger or ecologist. However, green jobs exist in almost any career field or industry. There are green jobs at all education and skill levels. There are emerging industries that support environmentally friendly products, services and technologies. Solar and wind power technologies, hybrid cars and aquaculture are some examples. Electricians and plumbers, however, can work with both traditional energy sources and with solar energy. Construction workers can also work on energy-efficient designs. Green jobs are not all scientific, technical or practical. New green companies need accountants, human resource staff, receptionists, sales people and others. Existing companies are adopting new technologies and work practices to become green.
