Arts, sciences and humanities build healthier, more livable, vital communities. They are essential to a strong education system. They contribute enormously to our economy.
Sustainability is no longer a buzzword hyping simple recycling efforts. Every day, companies are doing all they can to decrease their carbon footprint. Celebrating these efforts, Vault released its 2nd Annual Vault Guide to Green Programs. But Earth Day is even more significant because of the economic implications associated with going green.
Our economy was battered last year and the green job market that has been struggling in the past years, is now poised to become the next great job market. And with the President’s stimulus emphasizing energy and renewable investments, the market has become hot like never before.
These green jobs are going to, in huge part, swing us back to a pre-9.7% unemployment rate economy.
On that note, Vault also released its Guide to Environmental Careers, offering job seekers an insider’s edge into entering this burgeoning market.
My guest is Aman Singh, editor of corporate social responsibility for Vault, which is a comprehensive resource for career management and job search information, including insider intelligence on salaries, hiring practices and company cultures.
