Welcome the new green grads

It seems salary and benefits options are not enough to entice newly graduate students to work for a company. They have to have a good green status too.

According to a recent survey conducted by career service provider Experience Inc.,79% out of 2,774 college students and recent grads they asked reported that they would be more likely to accept a job offer at a green company over another company, when evaluating two similar job offers.

Only 16% are currently working or doing internship at a green company, the survey said.

Experience founder and CEO Jenny Floren advised that companies should clearly communicate their environmental commitments and socially responsible practices throughout all recruiting programs to attract the best talent.

Who would want to work for a company who has environmental liability? But at this time when the word recession is in the mind of a graduate, I wonder if being green would really matters to them that much?
