Carol McClelland, PhD - Green Career Expert

Company Profile


In addition to Your Dream Career For Dummies and the newly-released and award-winning book, Green Careers For Dummies, Carol McClelland has dedicated her entire career to helping people find careers that match their personal values.  Her work with clients and students over the last eighteen years provides her with detailed insights into how to help people change careers.


When Green Career Central was launched in 2007 the goals was to give members access to the tools, resources, and activities Carol always used with her private clients.

Green Career Central is the first site of its kind.

Carol thinks you'll agree, our planet needs our help and changing our personal habits isn't enough. The more people we have devoting their work hours to tackling global warming solutions the sooner we'll make the progress we need to make.


Green Career Central is committed to making our nineteen years of knowledge about career discovery and green resources available to as many people as possible.


Working one-on-one with a green career consultant may be out of reach for many. That's one of the reasons this membership site was created rather than a consulting service.


Green Career Central is a membership site for you to transform your passion for the environment into a prosperous green career.  We offer coaching, resources, articles, recorded audios, and more to help you find your green career.
