The last few months have been very exciting for the CleanTechies team. What started with a first blog post by Ian has grown to a CleanTech internet portal, offering a broad range of features and functionalities.
Since then, we have published 65 blog posts on a variety of CleanTech issues – including the effects of the credit crunch, the impact of cheap oil, the promise of the Obama campaign as well as the state of the international solar market.
Most of them we published in the last three months after Marco, Ceylan and Hilary got on board and – most importantly – more than 15 motivated industry experts joined the CleanTechies Blogger Team.
The CleanTechies portal
Today, you can take advantage of all of these features: Take a look at job openings on the CleanTechies Job Board, and you can find the CleanTech job you are looking for. Read our Blog, and discuss current trends with the CleanTechies bloggers and the rest of the CleanTechies community. Check out the Bookstore, and find some of the best CleanTech books that have been recommended by fellow CleanTechies. Follow the Sector News, and stay informed easily by following the latest headlines. Uncover the most valuable websites on issues of clean technology in our CleanTech Links collection. If you’re an Employer, hire the right talent with CleanTechies doing the candidate search & staffing for you.
A growing community
In less than three months, our LinkedIn group has grown at a steady pace from 1,300 members in September to more than 2,200 members today. In addition, our community on Xing now has roughly 500 members, and on Facebook we’re about 150 people. Our CleanTech Jobs RSS and Blog RSS feeds as well as Twitter updates have found many followers, and CleanTechies blog posts are being recommended on social bookmarking sites like Digg, Technorati and StumbleUpon.
The next few weeks will continue to be exciting as we are launching several new features. Stay tuned for many more additions and improvements to your CleanTechies site.
We would like to wish you happy holidays and a fabulous new year 2009 full of excitement, adventure, motivation, innovation, happiness, health, wisdom, curiosity and surprises. We would also like to take the opportunity and sincerely thank all of you who have been supporting us over the last few months. Without your continuous support and feedback, we wouldn’t be where we are today. Thanks for making the CleanTechies community stronger every day.
