A new online platform is designed to help solar companies recruit qualified candidates, allow job seekers to find career and training opportunities, and help the solar industry build a strong and diverse workforce.
AmericanSolarWorkforce.org is managed by the Solar Training Network, a program led by The Solar Foundation and funded by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Solar Energy Technologies Office. The tool is a revised and improved version of an earlier online platform.
Using this platform, which is free of charge, employers can post opportunities on a solar job board and connect with candidates looking for career opportunities. Employers can also create company profiles, review candidate applications and communicate with potential hires.
