As the green industry is growing and conservation is becoming more important, there are jobs available in the field of green energy even in these hard economic times. While other areas of industry are suffering, green careers seem to be the new wave of the future.
It’s predicted that green jobs are going to be sustainable as many more people are getting involved in conservation and going green. In this era of the green economy these are some of the jobs that are projected to be in high demand:
Much of our energy is now being harvested from the sun. After being proven incredibly effective, solar power is becoming much more prominent and many places are making the switch to save money. Anyone going into construction might consider specializing in installing solar-thermal water heaters and rooftop photovoltaic cells as they are in increasing demand.
The direction of our education is steadily becoming more focused on the sciences as that is the direction our economy is heading. If going back to school is an option, consider environmental science or biology as a track to becoming a conservation biologist. There is a renewal in the desire to preserve the environment, so there is a growing demand for scientists who are knowledgeable and willing to study and work with ecosystems and wildlife. This also opens up opportunities to teach or participate in research.
Much of the world lives in urban areas, and that number is projected to continue growing. Urban planners are key to lowering America’s carbon footprint.Urban planners are responsible for designing metropolises so the flow of potential problems, many of the environmental like garbage and flooding, is limited. Employment in this sector is projected to grow 15 percent by 2016.
