CareerBuilder: Find the Right Person for Green Job

There is plenty of information out there on how to find a green job in the environmental industry, but what about for employers looking to make a new hire?

Most job seekers looking for “green” employment won’t have any experience within the industry, so employers are forced to compare apples to oranges when looking at qualifications. So how do they know who is the right person to fill the role?

CareerBuilder has generated articles targeted toward these job seekers that might also be helpful to employers. If you, as an employer, know what jobs they are looking for and why, you’ll know their motivations for entering into the industry, and can then help determine their qualifications. The articles below show a couple themes: the desire for a change of scenery and high salary potential.

In general, those seeking employment in the green industry might be looking for a career switch to get out from behind a desk. CareerBuilder examined 18 high-paying non-desk jobs and found two within the green industry: wind turbine service technician and solar photovoltaic installer. Check the article to find their median hourly rates–the ultimate motivator! This second article delves into jobs for outdoorsy types and shows a correlation to employees seeking to free themselves from an office setting.
