We’re excited to announce the launch of the new Solar Career Platform at solartrainingUSA.org. Solar Energy International (SEI) is proud to be an official Training Provider of the Solar Training Network, and we know this platform will be helpful for students and job seekers nationwide.
If you’re interested in a career in solar, you’ll be glad to know that the number of solar jobs in America has almost tripled in the past six years, according to The Solar Foundation’s National Solar Jobs Census 2016. The solar industry is adding workers at a rate nearly 17 times faster than the overall economy. That said, the Census also found that 82.7% of solar installers reported difficulty in finding qualified candidates. With the number of employment opportunities rapidly expanding, there is an ever-increasing need for skilled solar workers, and we want you to be onboard!
For students and solar job seekers, the Solar Training Network will improve access to solar training, resources, and career opportunities. Members have the ability to upload a resume, search for solar trainers and employers using an interactive map, find helpful resources, and attend Solar Training Network regional job fairs. All of this and more is available on the Solar Career Platform launching today, April 8th, at solartrainingUSA.org
The Solar Training Network is a U.S. Department of Energy SunShot Initiative program that connects job seekers with training opportunities and employers. The program is designed to help meet the workforce needs of the growing solar industry. It is led by The Solar Foundation, an independent nonprofit organization with a reputation for excellence in solar jobs, research, and workforce development.
