Green-Collar Jobs on the Rise

Going Green: Green-Collar Jobs

Many professionals are beginning to apply their skills to improving the environment, and as a result a whole new collared class has emerged. According to a report commissioned by the American Solar Energy Society, there are currently 8.5 million U.S. jobs in renewable-energy and energy-efficiency industries and that number could grow to 40 million in the next twenty years.

Some politicians are certainly doing their part to hit that 40 million mark. On Monday, Hillary Clinton and John Edwards both mentioned creating more green-collar jobs to stimulate the economy, as these jobs aren't easily outsourced.

Considering a green-collar career? Careerbuilder has a list of 25 Jobs That Let You Go Green along with average salaries for each job.
