Jobs in Geothermal and Jobs in LEED. The network now consists of six green job sites including Jobs in Solar Power, Jobs in Wind Power, Jobs in Biofuels and Jobs in Sustainability.
“Rather than focusing on the larger green job market, these sites are more targeted”, says founder Chris Russell. “Each site focuses on a specific segment of the green industry which attracts better quality candidates for the employers who use us.”
Many of the sites offer free content such as downloadable guides to working in that industry. Russell says there are three reasons green employers should use these sites as part of their online recruitment strategy;
1. Cost: job postings on each site are just $79. Most other green sites charge much more.
2. SEO: each site is search engine friendly and appears on the first page of Google results for their respective keywords. (example: search for phrase ‘wind jobs’)
3. Exposure: jobs on each site are cross-posted to the popular job search engine SimplyHired.com for double the exposure. It’s like getting 2 sites for 1 price.
When it comes to posting jobs online, niche or industry related job boards offer a much better return on investment than the big national sites. Job seekers have been turning to these job boards in droves over the past few years and they show no signs of stopping. They are often less costly and simply deliver more of the right candidates.
