Green Jobs–How to Honor Earth Week in your Career Search
But just because Earth Week ends tomorrow, you don’t have to end your search for a more sustainable job or internship! Stop by our Career Resource Library to check out the following books on green jobs:
- Careers in the Environment by Mike Fasulo and Paul Walker
- Careers in Science by Thomas Easton
- Great Jobs for Environmental Studies Majors by Julie DeGalan and Bryon Middlekauff
- The ECO Guide to Careers that Make a Difference by Environmental Careers Organization
- Paint Your Career Green by Stan Schatt and Michele Lobl
We also have a new feature in AU CareerWeb that allows you to see statistics on industries and job types classified as “green jobs.” After you’ve signed into the database, click on the “Career Explorer” link.
Then, click the “More Options” drop down menu, and select the “Green Jobs” icon.
This will pull up a list of 200 industries and job types that are environmentally focused. After you’ve found some industries or position types that interest you, set up an appointment with one of our Career Advisors for tips on how to search for available jobs relevant to those fields.
