Weatherization jobs are vital for our transition to a clean energy future, yet weatherization employers face a continual struggle to fill their open positions. With support from the U.S. Department of Energy and a nationwide coalition of partners, the Interstate Renewable Energy Council (IREC) is developing a vast array of new resources to help weatherization employers recruit effectively and increase awareness of the benefits of weatherization careers. These recruitment materials will help the Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) hire a new generation of home energy professionals, including individuals from underrepresented communities.
The central hub of this work is Green Workforce Connect, a new platform that connects job seekers and contractors to weatherization employers. Tune in to this upcoming webinar to learn about Green Workforce Connect and how your organization can leverage it to achieve your recruitment goals.
Webinar attendees will learn:
- What resources Green Workforce Connect currently includes and how to use them
- How these recruitment materials and strategies will be piloted in three states before rolling out to a national audience in September 2024
- How you can stay informed about updates and expansions to Green Workforce Connect
- Agricultural and Environmental Technologies
