Oil and gas workers encouraged to improve employability in the green economy

AUSTIN, Texas - Aug. 4, 2023 - PRLog -- As the world collectively steamrolls ahead with a transition to clean energy, and an outright discontinuation of the use of harmful fossil fuels, EcoCareers.org is encouraging oil and gas workers to start improving their employability in the green economy now.

EcoCareers.org is an online jobs board and resource website for all jobs in sustainability. Its dedicated team of experts seeks to connect employers, hiring managers and HR personnel in the green sector with jobseekers and the top talent in their respective industries.

There's no doubt about the many benefits to come as global leaders race to achieve the UN's Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Millions of dollars in investment and GDP, and hundreds of thousands of jobs, are expected by 2030 thanks to these new developments. But there is often little mention of how that will impact the millions of people who already work in the global oil and gas industry as it slowly phases out.

Thanks to efforts from the government, private businesses, investors and NPOs, it's expected that over 100 million green jobs will be created in the next seven years. On the flipside of that, it means the nearly 90 million people who already work in oil and gas could be out of a job in that same time. However, the number of new jobs coming onstream will actually outpace the losses. What that means is that people who are already employed in the oil and gas industry in some way or the other have time to transition into new career paths alongside the transition to renewable energy.

EcoCareers encourages oil and gas workers to improve their employability in the green sector by starting to build relevant skills and knowledge now. By enrolling in online courses or taking advantage of professional development opportunities, they can make rapid headway in launching a more sustainable career in renewability.

At the same time, oil and gas workers can take advantage of a current skills shortage in the green economy. Employers are currently more lenient with their hiring and offer options like apprenticeships to help build skills. Keen workers with experience in oil and gas, as well as newcomers to the workforce, can take advantage of this to launch successful careers in renewable energy, and resources like EcoCareers.org offer the perfect way to easily land the job of their dreams.
