An environmental occupation is essentially any employment that straightaway contributes to minimizing our geological encroachment, whether it's by creating tech solutions or giving out advice. As loads of eco-friendly jobs command outside labor, which isn't overly surprising given the manner of the industry, there too are loads of indoors jobs that are nevertheless considered to be green.

The hindrance for many work seekers looking for conservational work seems to be that the impression of green employment is comparatively unfamiliar, and whilst there are various employment opportunities that have been created just for going environmentally-friendly, loads of of them are so unexampled that there isn't a heap of data on them and their longevity is heretofore to be seen.

Arizona Nursing Jobs Created by New Mayo Program

Many Arizona nursing jobs will be created by a new cancer therapy clinic.

Mayo Clinic is planning to build a new multi-site Proton Beam Therapy Program with locations in Phoenix, Ariz., and Rochester, N.Y. Those facilities will create thousands of new jobs and treat about 2,480 patients each year by the time both sites open in early 2016.

The new facilities are being funded in part by a $100 million gift from Philanthropist Richard O. Jacobson, a long-time patient of the clinic. Both projects will cost more than $400 million to complete and Mayo will ask for help from other philanthropists to cover the cost gap.

"My dream has always been to establish a major new facility for Mayo Clinic," Jacobson said in a statement. "I began going to Mayo for my care when I was a child and continue to get my care there. Mayo Clinic makes a profound impact on people."

Proton beam therapy is considered to be advanced when compared to traditional radiotherapy, because the proton beam only targets the tumor, sparing the surrounding tissue and organs. Mayo's proton beam program will use the most advanced technology available, causing fewer side effects for patients.

"Our goal is to reduce the burden of cancer for patients and family members," Robert Foote, M.D., chair of Mayo Clinic's Department of Radiation Oncology, said. "We want to preserve normal organ function and optimize patients' quality and length of life."

Currently, more than 20,000 patients receive cancer care at Mayo Clinic. The hospital system has three cancer programs in Phoenix, Rochester, and Jacksonville, Fla. All of those locations will benefit from the clinic's proton beam technology.

San Antonio Construction Jobs Ranked Low

"Bad weather and poor timing conspired to make December a pretty unhappy month for a lot of construction workers around the country."

Phoenix Customer Service Jobs Supported by Cox Communications

One of the most wide-reaching cable companies in America is working to create more Phoenix customer service jobs.

Cox Enterprises Inc., the parent company of Cox Communications, is planning to expand an existing warehouse and build a new regional data center in Phoenix. Those plans will create more job openings for a variety of employees, from technicians to customer service representatives.

Cox currently employs about 3,600 workers throughout Arizona. A call center in Phoenix supports most of the company's Spanish-language customers, while other offices in the area support telephone customers in Omaha, Neb., and Atlanta, Ga.

"This is a very important long-term market for us," Cox Communications President Patrick Esser told The Arizona Republic. "We continue to put more and more things into Arizona."

The company has spent about $2.5 billion in Arizona during the last 10 years. What's even more impressive is that Cox actually increased its spending in the state during the economic recession, spending an extra $300 million to update a residential fiber-optic network.

"In markets like Phoenix and Tucson or Sierra Vista, you need robust broadband services to attract businesses and to sustain the businesses that are trying to grow in the market," Esser added. "So, it's good for the economy to have someone like us spending the kinds of dollars we are in this market."

Future plans include spending at least $100 million per year to update broadband, telephone, cable, and other services for residential and business customers. The company also plans to offer more services focused on evolving technology, such as streaming television and cellphone services.
