Green jobs are on the rise and are poised to play a major role in the rebound of the national and international economies. Wal-Mart has recently created a Green Jobs Council, The Wharton School at the prestigious University of Pennsylvania is offering a dual MBA with an environmental focus and the United Nations is projecting that fighting climate change will create a crop of new jobs.
There is another area that is seeing a lot of growth - environmental blogging. I am an environmental blogger and so are the other bloggers on the Mother Nature Network. I have been blogging for a couple of years now and every day I check the blog job boards and find that there are more opportunities for environmental bloggers than there was even just a few short months ago.
On one popular blogging job board there is a position posted for a blogger to join a large national renewable energy company. The company has a marketing department. The company has a communications department. What the company is looking for now is a blogger.
With the upswing in popularity of social media marketing, companies are beginning to truly grasp the power of blogs. Blogs have a wide reaching audience and are an effective tool to introduce the wide range of environmental issues that are being discussed in the world today.
The job board also has a submission from a different company that is looking for bloggers on a variety of topics including green fashion, green on a budget, green technology and global warming. If you're a blogger, now is the time to brush up on the latest in environmental news as there are jobs out there waiting for you.
