More than 200 career counselors, job seekers, economic developers, students, and educators attended Work Green! Finding the Green in Minnesota’s Economy, an event co-sponsored by ISEEK and Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development (DEED) on May 24.


The event was designed to introduce attendees to new resources for exploring and understanding Minnesota’s green labor market.
