This summer, it's possible to add a green edge to a resume to get a "green-collar" internship.
Getting a green job doesn't mean looking for jobs with "sustainability" or "environment" in the title any more. Green jobs are also not limited to installing solar panels or weatherizing houses.
From marketing to publishing to accounting to finance, viewing the world through the lens of sustainability and having practical experience in that area can make a difference when applying for jobs.
Internships focused on sustainability are invaluable for students who are job hunting because they help students demonstrate to employers that they can solve problems.
“Green-collar” jobs grew by more than nine percent, twice the growth rate for traditional jobs, from 1998 to 2007. Even during a recession, a greener résumé can be the answer to getting hired.
