In discussing the various aspects of Sustainability and CSR, most of the debate almost, always ends up centering around the two basic questions of 1) why is it needed, and 2) who can spearhead and what should be prioritized in the plan. However, there is another segment to this that is not talked about nearly as much as it should be. And that is pursuing it as a career.

As a certified CSR Practitioner, I can tell you the field involves a myriad of possibilities, enriching work and satisfying results. But what is the demand from companies and recruiters? I touched on this lightly last week when I posed the question: Will an MBA in Sustainable Business Get You Hired?.
