Forbes: Chicago Among the Top 10 US Cities for Green Jobs

This month, Forbes Magazine assessed the state of green jobs in the United States and came to this conclusion:

If you’re a job seeker in Boston, Chicago or L.A. with experience in energy efficiency, environmental compliance or sustainable supply chain, you may be in luck.

Those are three of the top cities for green jobs right now, according to job aggregator site Gautam Godhwani, the site’s chief executive, says he’s seeing an uptick in these types of jobs everywhere….

“Although conventional wisdom suggests that ‘green’ hiring would be the slowest to recover from an economic downturn, we think this upward trend represents recognition of the role these kinds of jobs play in cutting costs,” Godhwani says. “We see this as further proof of the inroads sustainability has made as a legitimate business value for the modern organization no matter the economic climate.”
