Californians looking to join the State's fastest growing economic sector now have an easier way to do so thanks to a career Web site launched by Environmental Defense Fund (EDF)
. Green Jobs California
is a comprehensive resource for job seekers and guidance counselors who want to learn more about the State's emerging green economy. It includes thousands of businesses, institutions, and organizations throughout the State. The Web site will inspire people to pursue a career within the green economy; connect them with appropriate training programs; and expose them to online resources, including job boards that will help them start a green career in their chosen field of interest.
One Web site highlight is Faces of Green Jobs
, a mini-documentary showcasing the experiences of men and women in what some are calling California's new industrial revolution. Companies and jobs profiled are in the five GREEN
categories as defined by the EDD's Labor Market Information Division (LMID). The Web site also complements a map of California's green economy
that lists thousands of growing clean energy and sustainable companies as a result of the State's climate change leadership. Workplaces on the map are involved in energy generation, energy efficiency, green buildings, transportation, carbon markets and sustainable business practices. The listings can be sorted by county and State legislative district.
