Green Up Your Job Hunting

Green StepsPounding the pavement is hard on the feet and with the current economy there is a lot of competition! So, why not consider getting a little green around the collar when searching for potential career options?

After all, that’s how I ended up starting Eco-Office Gals and our new President Obama has hope that green collared jobs will keep Americans working and help the economy. The best advice I can give is this: figure out what it is you know how to do, do well, and love doing!

After you do that the world is the limit, and you’re no longer restricted to your local classified ads. There are great green job boards online to help you grow virtually, often from the comfort of your own home! Here are some great links to help you explore your green collar career options:

Green Gigs – Lori not only eliminates the need to search over the vast sea of main stream job boards and freelance site for virtual, green collared jobs, she shares green business ideas & tips and interviews green business owners. This is a great site to help you get your virtual, green business juices flowing.

Green Collar Blog – This site lists probably every green collared job board available. Mind you many of these jobs may not be virtual, but you may find that perfect job right in your hometown.

Thinkspace – This site offers virtually unlimited possibilities to grow your office space green. Whether you want to lease LEED certified brick and mortar space, or enhance your virtual office options, Thinkspace has you covered!
