Each April, more than one billion people all around the world participate in Earth Day in some fashion or form. They make the effort to focus on economic consideration as well as environmental awareness. However, more and more of us have gotten to where we take Earth Day for granted and not as focused on the awareness and issues that are an environmental threat to Mother Earth.
But for those that take Earth Day to heart and want to do more may want to start looking at employment in the environmental technology industry. Jobs in this industry allow you to offering your educations, knowledge and skills to something towards the environment. Yes there are “green jobs” where people can engage in a variety of activities on a daily basis which are intended to protect and support our planet 12 months a year.
We are going to just briefly cover a few of the jobs that would fall into the environmental technology industry in some fashion. And they are jobs you can have today, not something that is seen in the future way off.
A Solar Engineer
If engineering is your cup-of-tea and interest, then you need to look into jobs in the solar engineering area. Regardless what the future has in store for us when it comes to environmental technology and the energy sector, there is most likely going to be a need for solar connection. When you think about, the oil that is extracted from Mother Earth today is energy that has been constructed from ancient plants and extinct animals.
Experts believe that mankind will need to devote more attention and time to being more efficient in capturing sunlight energy. There are some universities who have started offering Solar Engineering Degrees in preparation of this need.
The Sustainable Fisherman
Maybe you are an open air, outdoor kind of person that would rather make the most of the world’s natural beauty? A Sustainable Fisherman may be for you. Environmental technology and fishing may see like an odd couple, but a majority of some of the most unbelievable seafood selections is being fished into extinction. The need to learn, practice and teach sustainable fishing solutions around the world is becoming a stronger and stronger need.
Another job that doesn’t sound like an environmental technology career is a Virologist. Today, while they are a simple form of life known, they are also trickier than they use to be and appear to be: Viruses. They are hard to fight the illnesses they bring and scientists are working hard to find better ways to understand the microbes that seem to be unbeatable. Experts at the Bureau of Labor Statistics tell us that this is the job for a person that is interested in saving the planet by making each and every virus extinct.
