You’re tired of constantly revamping your resume and sending it in, only to find that you never get a response back. When you do get a response, it’s getting old for you to see that the company was impressed with your qualifications but chose someone else – basically, a sugar-coated rejection. You need to really focus on the top companies that are hiring to increase your chances of solidifying a position and finally getting noticed. Here are the top companies that are hiring now – and the company that appears to be the greenest of them all.
Sears Sears.com Home Page specifically has more than 3,500 openings. This employer stands out specifically because of its unparalleled green focus: In fact, it received the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s ENERGY STAR Corporate Commitment Award – the agency’s biggest honor.
Sears Home Services also recently bought 27 new Ford E250 cargo vans for its Seattle fleet. Roush CleanTech Propane Autogas converted the fleet to propane power, which decreases the emission of exhaust and ultimately reducing greenhouse gases by 25 percent. On top of that, carbon dioxide emissions are decreased by a whopping 60 percent with this fleet, and owners have the opportunity to minimize their fuel costs with these greener vehicles as well. Drivers of the home service vans also must follow the company’s “no idling policy” as well as drive at speeds that promote the greatest fuel efficiency.
