Need a green job? Check out Climate Careers

It is that time of year and many of our readers on campus are looking towards graduation or the end of the semester with trepidation. What are you going to do? Your parents may be bugging you for your summer plans and balancing exams with cover letters and resumes.

Well, we are here to help. It is a tough economy and jobs are scarce. Jobs that allow you to continue doing groundbreaking work on solutions to the climate crisis are even scarcer.

However, we are debuting a new section of It’s Getting Hot in Here to provide you with a one-stop shop to find many of those jobs, or at least where you can go to start looking. Climate Careers hosts the EAC jobs board widget, which streams headlines of the most recent jobs sent to the list. Sign up to get jobs in your inbox. Recent jobs listed are:

Executive Director of the Southern Energy Network (Athens, GA)
Campaign Director at Corporate Accountability International
…and for the more technically-minded: Application Engineer_Utility SCADA systems – SmartGridCareers

That isn’t all. We are also providing links to jobs boards at leading websites and environmental and climate organizations. Instead of Googling through a host of nonprofit websites, check it out and use it for a homebase when you are looking for the next internship or that job out of college. Even if you are an experienced campaigner, it is a good place to start looking for the next green job.

If you are looking to hire some of the top talent coming out of the youth climate movement, send your job description here:

Please, let’s makes this a resource for both job seekers and those looking to hire all you smart, capable It’s Getting Hot in Here readers, so tell me if I am missing jobs boards or what resources you would like to see in the Climate Careers section .

    The links to the “climate careers” section don’t seem to be working – they all end up back on this same page.

    Hey Christine,

    They should be fixed now. We are having a few technical difficulties with It’s Getting Hot in Here that are in the process of getting fixed.

    The link is: and is on the top navigation bar,

    Thanks for your patience,

    Thanks – I’ve been invited to attend a careers fair at a local jr high next week as a climate activist, but wanted to have a few more job ideas available for the students in case some of them actually wanted to earn a decent living :).
