(3BL Media) June 13, 2012 - The International Society of Sustainability Professionals (ISSP) is hosting a webinar on Thursday June 21 that will provide practical guidance for people interested in How To Make the Transition to a Greener, More Sustainable Career Successful. The opportunities for green jobs are out there and growing, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, a unit of the US Labor Department. Earlier this year, the bureau released a report concluding that 3.1 million people are employed in the production of goods and services that benefit the environment. This means that green goods and services accounted for 2.4 percent of total United States employment in 2010.

Join ISSP on June 21, 2012 at 11am PT (UGT -7) as we host Carol McClelland, PhD and Vicki Lind, MS for an interactive webinar that will explore:
•    Ways to assess the state of green opportunities in your field. 
•    How to streamline your career transition.   
•    How to identify your next step in your transition journey.
•    Why searching for a job may not be your best transition strategy.  
•    How to avoid potential detours that can cost you valuable time during your transition.  
•    The "Top Ten Mistakes" make in career transition and job search.
