State of US Green Job Market

Forbes recently ran an article addressing job prospects for impending 2008 graduates. Despite the looming (or already present, depending on your outlook) recession, job prospects for neophytes look quite strong!

Interestingly, the green jobs sector looks poised to offer future laborers an even more promising professional outlook than most. According to an article recently published by the Green Biz Journal, green jobs are in for boom times. All the more reason to consider your career options carefully when leaving the educational sandbox, and consider working with environmentally focused recruiters like Bright Green Talent (recent news release on BGT available through Forbes online). The Blue Green Alliance is another excellent resource for those looking to help transition rust-belt jobs towards a cleaner, greener future.

The interesting caveat to the green jobs prognostications is that the number green jobs may, in fact, suffer from the very problem they’re trying to solve: improved efficiency and better resource utilization. Many green jobs rely on finding folks who can do more with less. Though the economy’s poised for a green growth spurt, it may be slightly offset by the number of jobs that are made redundant and conflated into more efficient roles. Two sides to every coin, I guess. Either way, with more talent charging into the green economy, it’s another nickel in the green economy’s pocket, and a win for the planet. All good, all green.
