Grist.org launches green job board
Employer postings will emphasize social responsibility and environmental focus
SEATTLE, WA — Grist.org, the world’s leading source of environmental news and commentary, has recently introduced a new forum to connect its young professional audience with ideal job opportunities. Through the launch of its green job board, Grist hopes to connect socially and environmentally conscious employers with progressive, green-leaning job candidates.
Today, young professionals are seeking to find jobs that support their values, creating an ideal marketplace for Grist’s comprehensive new job resource. Already hosting a vibrant community of engaged young professionals, Grist regularly draws readers with above-average education and income levels who actively participate in the green conversation.
Grist’s vision is to provide a premier site for businesses, government agencies, and nonprofits to post job openings and recruit these professionals. Posted jobs could range from general opportunities at socially responsible companies to corporate-sector jobs specifically focused on the environment or sustainability.
Job seekers can choose to receive job alerts via email or RSS for a variety of employment categories including Administration/Management, Education, Government, Green Building, Marketing, and Research/Writer. These alerts can also narrow the job opportunities to specific geographic ranges. Posting one job opening costs $25 per month, with discounts available for multiple posts. For $50 per month, these jobs will be specially featured on the Grist homepage.
The nonprofit, independent, online magazine Grist was founded in April 1999, and over the past eight years has developed the most recognizable voice in environmental journalism: funny, opinionated, and intelligent. Grist offers in-depth reporting, opinions, book reviews, advice, and a popular blog—all tailored to inform, entertain, provoke, and encourage its readers to think creatively about environmental problems and solutions.
Each month, Grist reaches over 700,000 unique individuals through its website and emails, and it has enjoyed particular success among readers in their 20s and 30s. Through syndication arrangements with other media outlets like MSNBC.com and Salon.com, Grist is reaching an even broader audience that extends into the millions. Grist has been featured in Vanity Fair, the New York Times, Newsweek, and dozens of other national publications. Grist earned Webby™ People’s Voice awards in both 2005 and 2006 as the internet’s best magazine.
