KleanJobs.com has just announced it is now offering green-collar job search for job candidates and job-posting services for green economy employers.
KleanJobs.com is a new job search engine specifically tailored to clean technology products and services, including energy management, sustainability and careers related to accounting for and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Green-collar jobs include employees in the fields of engineering, accounting, sales, marketing, manufacturing and product development. The high demand for renewable energy, as well as the many companies focusing on sustainability initiatives, is shifting more jobs into what has come to be called "The Green Economy."
"Green economy employers have very specific needs and requirements for their workforce," said Greg Schreiner, clean tech recruitment manager at RedFish Technology. "This field is becoming very competitive and we see the demand for highly qualified employees with broad-based knowledge of green technologies increasing. Getting the right people in the right roles is every company's first responsibility and we are looking to sites [such as] KleanJobs.com and CleanTechRecruits.com to help us identify the right people."
In addition to offering a search site for green-collar workers, KleanJobs will also be branching out into related services, such as job certification in green economy skills and resume writing and editing services. Company co-founder PJ Stoural says he hopes to address a need for employers in this field to locate the talent they want. "There's a huge unmet need for US workers, as well as returning US service members, to get trained in these fields. There are estimates of up to 46,000 new clean jobs in the US this quarter and we have employers who want to hire."
