Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably heard some talk about “green jobs” in some shape or form. Probably because most of us have come to terms with the fact that green is the future – especially in the energy industry. With this new green energy economy comes huge opportunity for jobs, which is good news in the current recession. Although green jobs sound great, and the Obama administration has dedicated hundreds of billions of dollars to green initiatives over the next decade, many of us are still confused in exactly what a green job entails and how to get one. If you’re looking to get involved in the green industry, wondering where all this money is going, or just plain curious, I suggest you start with the Environmental Defense Fund’s website, where they offer a guidebook on green jobs. It’s geared toward Californians, but it has great general information for anyone that is looking for a place to start. Click here to download the PDF.
