Green Jobs Fair Coming To Northern California

by Green Jobs Ready on February 14, 2011

Numerous websites centered around news pertaining to the various green industries, including EarthTechling, are abuzz over the recent announcement that the Green Jobs Network is currently planning a Green Jobs & Entrepreneurship Fair aimed at unemployed potential green jobs industry workers in Northern California.

The fair, which is set to be held on February 16 at the David Brower Center on Allston Way in Berkeley, California, will include a Resource Fair, which will host representatives from many major organizations “relevant to green job seekers and entrepreneurs,” according to the fair’s website. These organizations include the Alameda County Small Business Development Center, Bay Area Green Tours, the San Francisco Department of the Environment, Skyline College, and the Solar Living Institute, among other institutions.

Leonard Adler, the founder and Chief Executive Officer of the Green Jobs Network, will also issue a keynote presentation to fairgoers, which will “provide practical tips on identifying green jobs, including using niche job boards,” and will also furnish information to attendees that may help them locate green jobs not commonly sought after.

Other sessions at the fair address a variety of other topics relevant to the search for green jobs, including on how to successfully shift from traditional employment into a job with a green industry, and the techniques and background stories of local environmental entrepreneurs and technological innovators such as Seth Linden, the President of Tutorpedia, and others.

Pete Danko of EarthTechling reports that all advance tickets to the event are sold out. Danko indicated, however, that the organizers of the event claim that more tickets will be offered for sale at the fair’s door the day of the event.
