This is a great article! Thanks.We are a small civil engineering firm in atlanta and we are constantly looking for ways to expand into the green market.
We have found also that going to local meetings at places like the Council of Quality Growth or joining a group such as the U.S. Green Building Council are also great ways to get connections or jobs.

I just want to add that I wouldn't use recruiters, it's not worth it.

This is one of the best article on jobs I had come across. All the strategies like networking, emailing list, academic instituions and many other are really good points made by the author
