Green collar

With these very windy days lately, it got me thinking about green jobs. As I did a little online research, I see that it’s a hotter topic than I thought! Jobs range from a wind analyst to a smart grid engineer and there’s a wind turbine technition program available right here in Ankeny.

If your expertise isn’t science-related, it doesn’t mean you’re out of luck. Education, communication, business and most other lines of work all have jobs that are becoming more eco-friendly. I found a few other jobs that I wouldn’t have thought of as green, such as a science teacher, camp counselor and economist.

Are there other jobs you can think of that could be green?
