Good Resources on Renewable Energy in Maine
For College Students
April 22nd, 2011BOSTON -
If you’re in college or just graduating and you’re interested in anything to do with, what I will reluctantly call “green”, my advice is to do anything. ANYTHING. Just get your foot in the door and go from there. I’ve recently made the transition and looking back there’s a couple reasons for my strategy.
- You don’t know what a good jobs is so any job will be a win-win. You’ll like it, or not, you’ll figure something out in both scenarios.
- The industry is growing so fast its likely you’ll be able to move around in your organization once you get in.
- Gaining any kind of experience will show that you’re serious and more credible then someone who “has always looooooved the environment.”
In the past 2 weeks, I’ve had four conversation with recent or soon to be graduates about what they’re interested in and passionate about to see if I could help them make the transition. I wanted to share one of these emails because it concisely records my thoughts. The initial email is from someone we can call Steve, who like myself, is also from the greatest state in the Union, Maine.
