The Recruiter's Outlook

  • Has the employment market hit its peak?

    May 31, 2022

    I believe it has. When hiring metrics are the lifeblood of your business, hyper-tracking comes with the territory. And I suspect that in April we saw the very first sign of the employment market in renewable energy beginning to slow. Maybe it is because of the uncertainty surrounding the circumvention case currently sitting with the […]

  • Renewable energy hiring in Q4 of 2018 remain extremely strong

    November 30, 2018

    Renewable energy hiring in Q4 of 2018 remains extremely strong. I’m a big proponent of metrics to drive performance of our team. Of the 10 metrics I track monthly, 7 of them in October grew by 100% over September’s figures. We broke our single month record for new searches within our existing customer base and […]

  • Busy time of the year!

    October 19, 2018

    Just as I’ve just completed my follow-ups from the largest solar conference in the US, I’m planning my meetings for the most prominent wind energy conference in Canada. Busy time of year!

If you read last month’s Outlook, you recall […]

I promise that, as we get into the fall, I’ll touch back into hiring for onshore wind and energy storage. The most important fact to report is that solar […]

  • Great news for distributed solar and energy storage

    June 1, 2018

    I’m biased because I was born in New Jersey, but GO NEW JERSEY! If you work in renewable energy, you undoubtedly read about the state’s new RPS increase to 50% by 2030. This is obviously going to be great news for distributed solar and energy storage, but New Jersey’s localities have an opportunity to become […]

  • Field Operations Opportunities

    March 1, 2018

    Spring is here (well, in some states) and that means opening the convertible roof of your car and cleaning your house from top to bottom. In our industry that means construction season picks up for solar and wind projects across North America. We’ve already seen an uptick in field operation positions. If you’re thinking about […]

  • The Influence of the Solar Module Tariff on Projects

    February 1, 2018

    What does this issue mean for recruitment? Added time and cost, for sure. There are a lot of variables in recruitment and this factor adds to the complexity. Find the right person at the right time at the right cost– it’s never as simple as it sounds. One thing you can count on is that […]
