Employers: Is your organization looking for stellar interns this summer? Or, perhaps for interns year round? Right now we are in the process of inviting employers looking for highly qualified candidates to participate in this year’s internship fair. Not only will you meet the candidates for the internships face-to-face on February 6, 2016 but your internship posting will be widely shared among our diverse network as well as posted on our Fields of Green webpage leading up to the event. In year’s past we have matched many amazing candidates with innovative green jobs.
