Forging a Green Career, or Kate Learns Valuable Lessons About Being Interviewed on Camera

I do my best robot impression in the opening 20 seconds of this clip. Photo courtesy of Don Solo on Flickr Creative Commons.

Last December I was invited to join a panel on forging a sustainable career at one of Peter Nicholson’s excellent Green Drinks events.  I can’t vouch for how much the audience learned from me, but I certainly learned a lot about how to behave when I’m being filmed! Note to self: try not to look like a robot that has been powered off while your interviewer is introducing you. But don’t take my word for it – watch the clip!

The keen of eye might observe that I appear to be rather round in the belly in this video – photos of a green baby here.

The next Green Drinks is tonight (March 10), and I strongly recommend attending. I’ve heard panelists Cleetus Friedman of City Provisions and Sarah Elizabeth Ippel of the Academy of Global Citizenship speak before and they are both fabulous. And as an added bonus you’ll get Janet Hong of the Field Museum talking about a new climate change exhibit she’s developing!  Register to attend here.

Kate,
As I am searching for a sustainable/green tech job here in Chicago, I ran across your video hoping for a laugh but actually found it to be pretty informative. You did not look like a robot, I probably could have done worse.
I would like to get in contact with someone at Saachi and Saachi regarding any positions you may have. would you be able to give me any help??
