Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In this guide for environmentally concerned job hunters, Cohn points out that businesses working toward becoming ``green'' need applicants with specific skills, knowledge, and experience, especially in the areas of management, marketing, finance, and accounting. Cohn's ``Career Profiles'' present people adept in traditional business functions, such as product management, who have been named to jobs such as Director of Environmental Affairs. About half the book is a corporate directory listing each firm's environmental programs and contact person. These contacts are supposed to be available for informational interviews only, but they will likely be flooded with resumes. The publishers' other career guide, The Complete Guide to Environmental Careers ( LJ 10/1/89), emphasizes more traditionally ``green'' careers, such as forestry. Both are recommended for business or career collections.-- Sue McKimm, Cuyahoga Cty. P.L., Parma, Ohio
