NYSERDA is powering a Roadtrip Nation initiative to send a team of young people out to explore clean energy career opportunities in New York State. Along the way, the road trippers will interview a diverse array of professionals throughout the state about how they found their way into the world of clean energy and learn about the exciting work they do.
In order to fulfill the project's overall mission, NYSERDA and Roadtrip Nation have launched the Clean Energy Portal . The Clean Energy Portal is a website designed to help local career seekers and young adults explore their interests and find viable clean energy career paths in New York State.
Within the site, New Yorkers can get advice and guidance from professionals, explore local career opportunities, and get a sneak peek of what exciting clean energy career paths are in development now. Through video interviews, actionable resources, and more, the Clean Energy Portal will help provide the tools and inspiration needed to pursue a clean energy career journey.
Website features include:
- Career stories and video interviews
These videos and career profiles from local leaders work to humanize career exploration and help career seekers connect with potential career paths on a personal level.
Tools and links connect career seekers with training, education, and job opportunities in their area.
Documentaries explore career fields through the eyes of young adults and career seekers. (Stay tuned for updates on the roadtrip/documentary NYSERDA is powering to send a team of young people out to explore clean energy career opportunities in New York State.)
