Using social networking to find a green job

Finding a job in any field can be very challenging these days - the old saying "it's who you know" applies more than ever before. Luckily for you, finding who you know is so much easier than ever before. Enter social networking! Facebook allows you to find every friend, friend of a friend, or friend of a friend's friend - surely, one of those friend's friends knows somebody who's worked in a company that you've always wanted to work for, or who is involved in a start up that you may want to work for (but don't know yet). And you don't have to stop there.

Use your existing social networks to find a green community. Involve yourself in a community online through one of your social networks (such as Keen For Green :) where you can keep up to date on the latest news while seeing what green jobs are out there.

If you are looking to network to find a job, Linkedin is a must these days. Once you join, connect to everyone you know and have worked with and then join some green groups! Connect with others, get updated on jobs and green news. The more you know, the better. Green is a group on linkendin with over 80,000 members, and there are others like GreenBiz that allow you to connect with others in your field. So get out there and connect!

Join Keen for Green on Linkedin, Facebook and Twitter!
