Hot Green Web Sites


Loverock, Kelly, Alternatives Journal


TRYING TO FIND A JOB Can be hard enough, but what about socially and environmentally helpful work? Check out these Web sites for green job and career opportunities.

Canadian Council for Human Resources in the Environment Industry (CCHREI) www.cchrei.ca

This fully bilingual Web site has extensive resources for career development as well as a list of paid and internship positions available across the country, including all ten provinces and the three territories. Most are technical positions (scientists and engineers) at energy, resource development and waste management companies, but employers do include law firms, provincial and federal government ministries, and first nations and non-governmental organizations. One of the most exciting aspects of the CCHREI site is its new job-matching function. Employers can create job descriptions and search resumes to find the most suitable candidates for their positions. Simultaneously, job seekers can use their "EnviroResume" to filter job postings.

Charity Village www.charityvillage.com

Charity Village is the self-proclaimed "supersite for the nonprofit sector" in Canada. Positions are regularly posted for people in communications, fundraising, web development and project management. All the big charity organizations (United Way, Canadian Red Cross, Canadian Cancer Society) post positions here, but smaller organizations in environment and development (such as the Oak Ridges Moraine Foundation and the Association for Women's Rights in Development) appear as well. Be warned that Toronto and Vancouver dominate the listings and only one in about 20 have environmental relevance. Additional services include a career assessment questionnaire, job search help and email alerts.
