Beyond Grey Pinstripes

For the last couple of months, I have been thinking on and off about a career change. Leaning more towards an eco career. Possibly work on things like Cradle2Cradle zero footprint manufacturing and renewable energy. I seriously lack the technical or management skills to make that switch. So I went about researching my going back to school options.

Asked a few fellow bloggers. First on my list was Joel Makower. Joel's blog is one of my favorites. I find it a great read. It turns out there are many like me asking similar questions. So much so, that it prompted him to write about it. Green Technology: Where the jobs are

Joel was kind enough to also point me to this website, BeyondGreyPinstripes.org
It is a good resource for anyone looking at a green MBA. Thought I share it with everyone here.

So what are you wanting to do exactly?

my question's the same as Jennifer...what do you want to do?

You actually can earn a living and feel good about it. There's sustainable technology you can research (if you are an electrical/chemical/mechanical etc engineer), do an mba and focus on sustainable companies for a job, go to law school, and work later on legal issues, there's public policy, there's basic research......so what are you going to do? :-)

Jennifer / Sunil ,

That is a good question. I am still evaluating my options.
