Searching for a Job in the Sustainable and Responsible Investing

Jed Sturman

Searching for a job in sustainable & responsible investing (SRI) is much like searching for a job in any industry: it is important to do your homework.

In 2013, the Wall Street Journal suggested that 80% of job openings are filled without being advertised.  To career service professionals and those of us who have conducted a few job searches, this number sounds reasonable.  For those who are trying to figure out how to get a foot in the industry, this fact can be daunting.  While a portion of this 80% can be accounted for by internal hires, how can the average job seeker connect with the right job?

The answers, of course,  are research and networking.
