Overview

Green Collar Jobs: Environmental Careers for the 21st Century is a simple, easy-to-reference guide that will help students, recent graduates, job seekers, and career changers at all levels find the latest information and job resources in this burgeoning new field.

This exceptionally timely book examines all aspects of green careers, beginning with an overview discussing green jobs from environmental, economic, and political perspectives. The core of the book is comprised of chapters that describe specific types of green jobs and career paths. These include jobs related to alternative energy, water resources, green marketing, green business, green building, and environmental law. For those willing to leave home, there is a chapter on global environmental jobs, and there is information on niche green careers such as ecotourism and green interior design. Each chapter includes job sources, education and training resources, and a listing of companies involved in the particular business.
