Green Your Resume: Before You Go . . .

Green chair With green tech on the rise, companies are increasingly looking for environmentally aware new hires. This week's tips tell you how to beef up your eco-credentials to land the job. 

Tip #4: Leave green in your wake. 

The best way to let a future employer know that you're a difference-maker is by putting your money where your mouth is. Show that you care about the environment and your company's financial well-being by improving sustainability at your current workplace. Consider starting a recycling program, having a third party conduct an energy audit, or pursuing one of the many other ways to make a workplace green. When it's finally time to move on, make sure to print your green-fortified resume on recycled paper, and don't forget to turn the lights out when you go.
