"President Obama has called for the doubling of renewable energy by 2012, and his administration and Congress have put renewable energy in the forefront of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. To meet the projected scale-up of renewable energy production, America will need to attract and hire hundreds of thousands-and potentially millions of new employees," said Michael Eckhart, President of ACORE. "The ACORE JobFinder is a powerful tool that will help renewable energy companies grow their work force and to find and hire the best employees. It will also help renewable energy workers to connect with great jobs."
Mike Hall, President of PSI said, "PSI believes in the importance of working together with companies, organizations, and the public. With over 15 years' experience in recruiting and placement, we have mastered how to match job seekers with great jobs. ACORE's JobFinder will help support and scale up the renewable energy industry to meet President Obama's goals and this country's energy demands."
For a limited time, ACORE will offer its Members a discount on job postings and 30% off banner ads. Savings on the postings range from $300 for five posts, over two months, to $8,995 for unlimited postings, a "Featured Employer" banner ad, "Job Search" banner and "Job Seeker " banner.
Samantha Byrd, ACORE's Human Resources Director said: "We are excited to offer this job board to the renewable energy community. The growth and success of this industry will depend on the development of jobs and the quality of the workforce. The ACORE JobFinder will be the go-to source for all industry jobs. "
