 Green Careers Website Completed!

The VEC is excited to announce that the new Vermont Green Careers website is now live at www.vermontgreencareers.org!

The website was developed to assist users in finding information about identifying and beginning  a green career in the Green Mountain State. The Vermont Department of Labor contracted with the Vermont Environmental Consortium to develop the Green Careers Website. The website is one aspect of a larger Vermont Business Sector Analysis project conducted by the Vermont Department of Labor and Vermont Technical College. The project was created to develop strategies and tactics to align the state’s workforce education and training resources with the needs of employers. It addresses the Vermont’s Next Generation Commission’s finding that one of the most significant barriers to business development in Vermont is a lack of skilled workforce. (The full Commission’s findings can be found here: Next Generation Report (PDF)
