As economic turmoil peaks and a staggering number of Americans file for unemployment, Ogden Publications, publisher of Natural Home & Garden magazine, is connecting job seekers and green employers through its website Great Green Careers. The website's official launch is on Earth Day, April 22.

Great Green Careers filters through top green job sites and independent posts to offer a promising selection and range of jobs. The website offers a comprehensive search of the green job market, from energy (biomass, tidal, geothermal, wind and solar) and skilled trades (plumbing, electrical, heating and cooling and building automation) to transportation and the environment (ecology, abatement, health and safety and parks). 

Employers can quickly post jobs and search the extensive resume database. If companies don’t have time to search for qualifying resumes, they can set up a resume agent that will pull resumes that match specific criteria. 

Job seekers have a growing job database at their fingertips. Searching for a career or location is easy with the advanced-search, browse-by-location or browse-by-keyword options. Great Green Careers is like an extra pair of eyes searching for the right job. You can post your resume and allow job seekers to find you. Applying for a job is free, and job hunters can apply to as many jobs as they desire. 

If you’re looking for a green job or want to take a new career path, try these tips: 

• Familiarize yourself with the environmental movement. Learn the effects it has on the economy and businesses.

• Start networking. Searching for jobs is only one aspect to landing a job; the second part is letting people know you’re looking for a job in a certain field. Use your relationships and networks as additional eyes in your job hunt.

Volunteer; you never know who you might meet and what valuable skills you’ll learn.
