Where To Post Your Home Energy/Weatherization Opportunities

Ready to make new hires in home weatherization? Once you’ve set up a career opportunities page and written accurate and compelling job postings, it’s time to get the word out. Below you’ll find a list of job boards that may provide additional opportunities for engaging diverse applicants interested in pursuing a career in weatherization and energy efficiency.

When you post a job, keep in mind that you’ll want to go beyond the well-known job boards like Indeed. Make sure to explore other forums that reach people from diverse and underrepresented groups in your area. Don’t limit yourself to online postings; postcards and flyers are other great ways to spread the word. And don’t forget to reach out to your network of community leaders, local workforce boards, and other stakeholders.
