June 2023 Open Jobs in Green Homes and Sustainability

Once again, so many jobs are being offered in the residential green building, sustainability, and decarbonization sector. It is unthinkable!

A decade ago, I could have only dreamed of this when I was in the job market.

A recent article from Planet Detroit focused on Detroit, though it could be a template for the rest of the country or world, as it highlights over 100,000 of these jobs being added alone in just the city in the next decade. https://planetdetroit.org/2023/05/planet-detroit-green-jobs-guide-construction/

The article then explains what a green job, a green career, and where to find one is. Even if you have a job not specifically related to green, our friends at Project Drawdown would argue that every job is a climate job (https://drawdown.org/news/insights/what-are-you-working-in-service-of), advocating that you can look for ways to advance decarbonization in your current job and, do this, advocate for it!

Remember, the first step to advancing green or a climate job is to get your Green Associates Designation or GreenHome Associates. GHI offers free assistance in both of these once you become a member!
