Careers in Green Construction

Posted by Charles Cox - On July 08, 2011 (EST)

The Bureau of Labor Statistics'Green Career Information staff within the Employment Projections program produces career information on green jobs, and just released "Careers in Green Construction". The document provides information on wages, expected job prospects, what workers do on the job, working conditions, and necessary education, training, and credentials.

As the document notes, "Buildings constructed today are very different from those built 100 years ago. As interest in protecting the environment grows, "green," or sustainable, buildings have become more commonplace. At first glance, these buildings might not appear very different from their predecessors, but they feature specialized designs and materials to limit their environmental impact." The document provides a wealth of information and would be of interest to all workforce development professionals as they assist job seekers.
