How do you find these new jobs? You can use conventional occupational search engines such as Monster.com or Careerbuilder.com, or try specialized sites such as Greenjobs.com or Sustainablebusiness.com. Network with people you know, alumni organizations and business groups. The green job in your future may not blossom through an online search but develop from finding a new way of leveraging the skills you already have. Recycling has many meanings in the Green Deal.
