workforwater.org addresses one of the water community’s top concerns in the coming decade, the expected retirement of 30% of the water workforce. AWWA and WEF are tackling the need to recruit new talent to the field.

The new website is a gateway to many recruiting and retention resources already available throughout North America and beyond. WEF and AWWA are inviting organizations to contribute documents, videos and links that benefit both career seekers and employers.

Paul Freedman, WEF President, said: “Work for Water aims to generate excitement about and interest in careers in the water profession. This new website will act as a recruitment tool for all of us who are trying to make information on water sector careers readily available.”

The workforwater.org site has landing pages for four audiences: high school and vocational school students, college students, second career and retired military job seekers, and advanced science professionals.
