"I looked at jobs that had to do with energy efficiency, with renewable energy, with saving money through recycling and other practices like that," he said. "We can't have a green economy without these people involved."
Here are the top 10 positions within green technology, according to Shatkin. Data are from the federal Bureau of Labor Statistics.
