Recognizing that the energy efficiency market is a fast-growing industry with many different opportunities for employment, Springfield Urban League and Ameren Illinois teamed up to create an energy efficiency jobs board for the state of Illinois. This is a resource for both job seekers and employers, and is 100% free to use. Job seekers can find a list of current employment opportunities related to energy efficiency in their area.
A potential job candidate can also find links to job readiness training resources, such as resume development and interviewing techniques, learn about industry recognized credential training to enhance their skill sets and receive financial coaching among other things. Employers can create a job posting or link an existing posting to the site, knowing that they are targeting job seekers specifically interested in the energy efficiency industry. Springfield Urban League is able to share this resource with their existing network of clients and partners as well as promote it in the community at events such as job fairs. To learn more, visit the jobs board at IllinoisEnergyEfficiencyJobs.com.
