Green Jobs and Resources


Searching for a Job is a Job

Searching for a job is a job in itself and should be approached in that manner.  And on today’s market it has to be approached from an integrated campaign perspective where you think in terms of personal branding in everything from your e-mail identity and domain to how you portray yourself in social media and images.  Employers look at it all and they focus first on reasons not to take you to the next level so you have to be careful not to give them any disqualifying professional or personal hiccups.

If you are out to change the world and subscribe to many of the core themes written about on this site, you might find what you are looking for in the below links:

Jobs of Note:

Advocate for Clean Water Environment American Washington, DC

Program Director, Environment America

Helpful Job Search Links

There are many, many job search lists around the internet that you should visit daily as well as the websites of many of the larger non-profit organizations which have their own job sections.



Executive Search Firms with non-profit practices

If you are searching for jobs in the higher registers, then you should become familiar with the world of executive search firms.  The Riley Guide is good place to start to get an idea of what is out there but I would also check out these individual search firms as well.


GOOD LUCK

NOTE: If you have a search site or executive search firm that you think should be on this page, please send it along.  Contact Bob robertmferris(at)gmail(dot)com.

  1. Interesting. Thanks for posting. As a software developer who chose the wrong profession, I've been looking for another career that fuels my passion (conservation, hiking, backpacking, mountaineering, wildlife photography, protection of wildlife, etc). Not sure how I can transition from such disparate disciplines, but I'm not about to live the rest of my life behind a computer. Thanks again!
