Green building experts from around the world are descending upon the Desert Southwest this week as Greenbuild 2009 gets underway. One of the events planned this week is the green building job fair, which will be held Tuesday, November 10 from 1:00 pm until 5:00 pm.
The green building job fair is open to all Greenbuild attendees but also pre-registered non-conference attendees. As of November 5, 2009, 25 companies are confirmed for the job fair.
The following companies will be participating in the Greenbuild Green Building Job Fair: Aqualine Water Treatment Products, Inc, Cascade Engineering – Cascade Renewable Energy, Cireon, Energy Inspectors, Enterprise Community Partners, g Green Design Center, GMX International, Green Building Services, Green Careers Center, Green Ideas, Guttmann & Blaevoet, HOK, Horizon Engineering Associates, LoraxPRO, Lutron Electronics Company, M.E. Group, Optimum Energy, Paladino and Company, PCD Engineering Services, PortionPac, Quasar Light Company Limited, Rate It Green, Redwood Systems, Rosendin Electric, and William F. Kempf & Son.
I recently featured Enterprise Community Partners in an article here on the Mother Nature Network. The organization recently announced a $4 billion pledge to its Green Communities initiative, which focuses on green affordable housing for Americans. The company will provide good, green jobs to help Americans obtain good, green housing.
Another company attending the green building job fair should also be familiar to MNN readers – HOK. HOK is an architectural design firm that has worked on several LEED certified projects including HOK’s Atlanta office (one floor above the MNN offices) and the Autodesk Gallery in San Francisco.
If you’re in the area and are interested in a job in the green building industry, then the green building job fair provides you with an opportunity to connect with 25 different companies. For green job seekers not attending Greenbuild 2009, you will need to register for the job fair prior to gaining admission to the event.
