Green Resumes for Green Jobs

 
Green-Resume

Aspiring facility managers and building owners take note – a green resume goes a long way.  Beginning your career in today’s economy can be a daunting challenge.  To get a leg up on the competition, especially in the facility management field, consider greening your resume to increase the chances of landing a job.

Viewing the world through the lens of sustainability and demonstrating practical experience with a "greener resume" can make a difference when applying for jobs, says Dedee DeLongpre Johnston, Director of Sustainability at Wake Forest University.

A recent study found 93% of CEOs believe sustainability will be "important" or "very important" to the future success of their companies. DeLongpre Johnston offers three simple solutions for students and new industry prospects wanting to bolster their green potential without greenwashing their resumes.

"Act like an 'intrapreneuer.' Seize opportunities for innovation and creativity - just like an entrepreneur - by incorporating sustainable values and practices into existing campus organizations and everyday life. Internships focused on sustainability are especially invaluable because they help students demonstrate to employers that they can think critically and solve problems."

"Start a 'green team.' Demonstrate results-driven leadership and help others develop more socially and environmentally responsible behaviors by evaluating the current level of sustainable practices on campus and taking action for improvement. Even small initial actions such as making available reusable mugs rather than using disposable cups can inspire larger scale changes over time."

"Look beyond job titles. Sustainability is a way of thinking, and opportunities are often embedded in functional areas such as marketing, research and development, and even accounting."
