What got you involved in sustainability? Learn how to effectively share your story and describe why sustainability is important to you.

Having a story to explain how you got where you are and why you are interested in certain career is one of the best ways to connect with an interviewer, fellow networker or anyone else with whom you are discussing your career ambitions. A story lets you showcase your past successes, experiences and connections; share your passions; and demonstrate the unique perspective that you bring to the table. It can also help you discover what exactly you want from a position and what other options you should be looking for. Join us at the next GreenHome NYC Careers event "Telling Your Sustainability Story" to hear stories and learn how to craft your own to make yourself a compelling prospect in today's market.
