Here, we take a brief look at the types of jobs available in the green energy industry and how to start your career. Read on to find out more.
Decide Which Green Energy Job You’re Are Suited To
Just like most other industries, there are several types of green jobs available that will suit people with a spectrum of skills, knowledge and experience. There’s the technical side of things for those who have engineering, logistics, project management or construction experience. Then there’s everything else from marketing, information technology, law, finance, management, maintenance, PR and every other business discipline under the sun!
Drilling down even more, within green energy there is also solar power, wind power, hydropower, recycling, waste-to-energy and much more. Depending on your skills, experience, interests or anything forthcoming training you have, you can decide which area of the industry is best suited to you. From there, you can decide which sector you would like to work in. A marketing graduate with a passion for zero-waste lifestyles, for example, might decide to apply to marketing manager roles for recycling firms or local authorities.
Getting a Green Energy Job
Just like any other industry, it’s important to have adequate experience to get you an interview and through the door. Through either university education or further education learning courses, you can get the required knowledge and skills about the industry. You can also choose to go down the work experience route where you work your way up the ranks of a green energy company. Whichever route works for you, you must show your passion for green energy, talk to specialists in the industry, research what training you can do and network with existing specialists in your field of choice.
