PRLog - Jan. 24, 2014 - DENVER -- Denver, CO, January 24, 2014 – On Tuesday, January 28, Ecotech Institute will hold a 30-minute afternoon webinar, “Demand for Skilled Labor,” that takes a look at why it’s so hard to find employees for positions in renewable energy and sustainable industries. Other questions the webinar will address include:

* What’s currently missing in the hiring pool for the renewable energy and sustainable industry?

* What is skilled labor?

* What soft skills are needed for these green energy jobs?

* What training and hard skills are needed?

Sue Pawlak, Ecotech Institute’s Area Director of Career Placement, will host the event. The webinar will be broken up into two parts: a 20-minute presentation, followed by a 10-minute question-and-answer session.

“When I meet with hiring managers I often hear that they need employees who have very specific training in wind and solar energy, who know the equipment inside and out and they want people who have had hands-on experience,” said Pawlak. “If employers don’t have to spend a ton of time on green energy training, they’d definitely prefer not to and that’s where applicants with skilled labor can really shine.”

Webinar Topic: “Demand for Skilled Labor in Renewable Energy”

Date: Tuesday, January 28, 2014

Time: 3:30 to 4:00 p.m. Eastern/2:30 to 3:00 p.m. Central/1:30 to 2:00 p.m. Mountain/12:30 to 1:00 p.m. Pacific
