Green Jobs

Interested in Helping Us Lead this Workshop?

The planning committee for the Montgomery County Greenfest is seeking professionals who work in “Green Careers” for a networking opportunity.

As a way to provide resources to Montgomery College’s student population, as well as to County residents, we are hosting a Green Jobs workshop. The workshop will include an introduction to Green Jobs, a short “careers inventory” worksheet, and then time for participants to network with professionals to learn more about what it takes to get into particular careers.

The goal of the networking portion is to allow workshop participants to meet with professionals working in various green jobs to learn about the paths one can take to get into these careers. We are seeking mentors who are interested in sharing their experiences along with their thoughts on where their field is going. This would be about 20 minutes long and you would meet with participants who are interested in a similar career field.

The broad career areas that we’re looking for mentors in are:

  • Advocacy & outreach, education
  • Policy & law
  • Trade Careers, energy auditors, solar installers, facilities management
  • Land Management Parks, forestry, and restoration
  • Corporate CSR, private sector administration
  • Engineering, energy management, urban planning, new tech, innovation/entrepreneurship.
