Below is our second “green job” post in less than a week. As an aside, I’m curious as to whether there’s anything to be said about the recent abundance (relatively speaking, of course) of common good/public service jobs in the region. These are the kind of jobs that tend to attract younger, college-educated types, which is a population that is arguably essential to the ability of cities to prosper. Specifically, I wonder two things: 1) is the rate of job openings in this sector any faster than average, or am I just noticing it because I have a medium with which to share such opportunities?; and 2) how many people will apply/have applied to these postings? At least in other parts of the country–particularly in those cities that can attract young professionals effortlessly–hundreds of recent college grads are applying for even the most low-level nonprofit jobs available. Might be worth looking into. At any rate, here’s the latest gig available:
