More new background analysis for your green job search:
The green economy is something that is difficult to define. Is it just green energy production? Is it recycling and carbon footprint reduction? In an ongoing joint project with WorkingNation, we have set out to both define and quantify green jobs, for now and the near future.
To define green jobs, we combine industry, occupation, skill, and keyword analysis. This methodology allows us to find not only the jobs that are obviously green, like those who work on wind turbines and solar panels, but also those that are less obviously so. We divide jobs into four groups, based on the characteristics of each job. Read the full report on EMSI.
