Ogden Publications, the largest and longest-running publisher in the green community, launched Great Green Careers April 22. The employment Web site focuses on matching companies and job seekers for careers in fields such as renewable energy, the environment, clean tech and sustainable building.

Ogden has leveraged its 3.3 million print readers and 1.5 million monthly online visitors to promote Great Green Careers through dedicated e-mails, e-newsletter mentions, and online and house ads.
