Marvin from DeVry University asked: 

I am pursuing a Bachelor’s in Electronics Engineering Technology with a concentration in  Renewable Energy.  What kinds of internship/jobs should I consider?

Hi Marvin –

I would recommend focusing your efforts on internships and jobs in electronics engineering and renewable energy.  You just need to look in the right places.

Are you familiar with the American Council on Renewable Energy (ACORE)?

Check out the ACORE Careers Page online.  It lists more than 30 online job search resources that focus on careers in renewable energy.

The U.S. Department of Energy has also produced a Careers in Renewable Energy information sheet.  This 8-page downloadable PDF document contains a lot of good advice, information and resources.

The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Outlook Handbook contains an entire section on Green Jobs along with specific information on a a variety of Green Career Paths.

Also, pay attention to the industry-specific job boards:

RenewableEnergyJobs.com

Renewable Energy World Careers Page

Green Energy Jobs

SustainableBusiness.com Jobs

GreenJobs.com

TheGreenJobBank.com

Marvin – you are pursuing a degree that prepares you for a very specific field.  Your challenge is not knowing what to look for, but rather where to look.

Hopefully these resources will start you down the right path.

Good Luck,
