Welcome to the Career Cruising newsletter for January 2011! We hope your year is off to a great start. Fortunately the holidays didn’t slow down our talented writers and developers. This month, we are pleased to announce our exciting new Green Careers activity package, and to remind you about our ongoing training webinars. Please read on to find out more.
New Activity Package: Green Careers
As career researchers have begun to recognize the impact the environmental movement is having on career planning, we have received an increasing number of requests for information on green careers. Our team has developed an exciting set of activities that can help your patrons understand what “green” means, and how green thinking can impact just about any career, including those not typically associated with the environment.
The Green Careers activities can be used individually or together. The diverse activity formats encourage patrons to develop various work-related skills while learning about the different ways green thinking can impact careers.
To help patrons learn more about green issues that interest them, we’ve also compiled a list of links to professional associations, government agencies, and other resources related to a variety of environmental issues. Patrons can access the links in the Green Resources Guide by clicking on the ‘i’ button in the top menu of Career Cruising and going to the Additional Information & Resources section.
You can find the Green Careers package and resources in the Helpful Documents section of CAMS, or by clicking on the ‘i’ button in the top menu of Career Cruising and going to the Classroom Activities and Research projects section.

We’d like to remind you that we have a wide variety of complementary live training webinars scheduled in January and February. Whether you are new to Career Cruising or an experienced user, we have options for you. To learn about the various webinars being offered or to register, visit:
