The NCRA Jobs in Recycling Workshop Series:
In September of 2011, NCRA launched the NCRA Jobs in Recycling workshop series, a free series to introduce and connect participants to the wide world of recycling jobs. The workshops feature panelists, from a certain segment of the recycling industry, that answer questions on their entry to just above entry level or even mid level jobs. Common questions include: What are you looking for in a staff member? What skills and experience specifically are you looking for? Where do you post these jobs? How much do the jobs pay? What kind of work do staff do in these jobs? and much more depending on the workshop and its participants.
Why NCRA Jobs?
Why should you attend a NCRA Jobs workshop? There are many reasons but here's why we think you want to attend:
The panelists are the people you want to know in this industry. They are Executive Directors, General Managers, Program Managers, Green Jobs Coordinators and usually the people at their respective organizations that do the hiring, interviewing, recruiting or all three.
Inside Information You Can't Get on a Website:
Panelists share resume and interview tips as well as in-depth descriptions about what exactly they are looking for in staff and then what staff might be doing once they get hired at different levels.
See the Passion:
Many people in this industry have such passion and drive for their work. At each workshop panelists will share their stories with you and you will see why so many in this field love what they do and who they work for and with.
