In the time since I wrote the article “12 Licenses and Certifications You Will Need in The Green Economy”, people have asked me a number questions about certifications and their importance to employers in the green, environmental and infrastructure job market. I have been asked questions like : “How will a certification help me in my green job search? How does a certification help me from an educational standpoint? Are employers really looking for these certifications?” I am going to discuss these questions over my next series of posts but today I am going to expound on this question:”I am a Career Changer. How will a certification help me in my green job search?”
This series of posts are devoted to share information on certifications and licenses that are in demand in the green, environmental and infrastructure fields. My goal is to help job seekers to understand the role of education and certification in their careers and how they can use it to position themselves for better opportunities.
