Don't discount the opportunities that Craigslist and other local community sites offer.  Oftentimes, young start-ups will rely on those sites because they're free.  Think of it this way, money saved on advertisement is money that can go to new solar employees.  Go to the jobs section and filter for "solar".

Industry News

Plain and simple... If you want to be a part of the industry, you have to keep up with the industry. Get informed, but be careful with information overload...unless you're an info junkie like me :)

Clean Technica
Energy.gov
Greentech Media - Solar (lots of other renewables on this site)
IREC
Renewable Energy World
Solar Industry Magazine
Solar Energy Industries Association: SEIA


and the GUNTHER Portfolio has a whole slew of links, especially for those of you in California!

Local/Regional Information Sources

One of the best places to search is on the sites of local energy companies.  No matter your stance on utilities, the fact of the matter is that even the utilities understand the importance of renewables.

The Solar Professor has a great assortment of videos explaining solar 101 as well as NABCEP concepts.

Solar Power Guide's "Educational Section" has a wide assortment of "what is it?" and "what's it mean?" (special thanks to an elementary class researching solar for this suggestion :)

If you know of a good site for searching for solar (or any renewable), let me know.
