GreenBiz Charts Creation Of Sustainability Jobs In The VERGE Economy

If you’re looking to map out new job types or a career path in sustainable business, take a look at Greenbiz’s new infographic on “10 Hot Jobs in the VERGE Economy.” […]

Finding a job and building a career is particularly tough these days, with technology and economies changing so fast. New types of jobs and careers are being created even as longstanding ones are lost. Among the former, “green” jobs and professions that help businesses reduce energy and resource use (as well as find better, more sustainable alternatives) are pegged to be among the fastest growing, not just in the US, but globally.

New job and career opportunities are emerging particularly fast in energy, transportation, and built environment, a group of economic sectors GreenBiz has dubbed the “VERGE Economy.”

Aiming to assist those looking to identify and map sustainable business job types and professions in the emerging VERGE Economy, GreenBiz has put together a helpful infographic (below). GreenBiz has also organized a VERGE@Greenbuild conference at the Intercontinental Hotel in San Francisco Nov. 12-13.

Read on — it just might spark an interest that leads to a new rewarding job and career path…. (Click on the infographic and then click on it again on the next page to get a better view.)
