DC: A Haven for Green Jobs
D.C. is a haven for green jobs, at least when compared to other parts of the country, according to a prominent green job listing Web site. The city ranked second behind California on Greenjobspider.com’s list of the top five states posting green job openings online in May. Researchers at the green job search engine checked more than 20 green-specific job boards and major job search aggregators to decide which states had the most positions available. Each state was ranked according to the total number of jobs across various green job titles, such as solar installers and engineers. Individual company sites were not part of the study.
The company defines green jobs as those jobs that create, support, maintain or regulate recyclable, energy-efficient or renewable energy products and services.
