Applying for a green job requires the same level of preparation that you would undertake for any other job interview, but being familiar with basic green issues and practices gives you a leg up during the interview process. Keeping abreast of green news makes you appear informed and at the cutting edge of developments. Being aware of green practices allows you to speak of the personal
initiatives that you take in your life to reduce your carbon footprint and create an environmentally friendly and energy-efficient community, demonstrating your knowledge, self-motivation and leadership qualities.
