Valuable resource: What is Troops to Energy Jobs?

A project of the Center for Workforce Development, Troops for Energy Jobs is a website "designed to help veterans make a successful transition to a rewarding career in the energy industry."

According to the website, it will "guide you step by step in transferring your military training to a new energy job, identifying any additional education and credentials you may need, and supporting you in your job search by utilizing an interactive Troops to Energy Jobs ROADMAP."

You can get a career coach and explore options after visiting that aforementioned roadmap (a pic of which is above). 

Again, according to the website: "There is no better way to honor you, our nation's veterans, than to provide support for your successful transition by creating a pathway into a rewarding energy sector career. The nation's electric and gas industries believe that veterans have spent their military careers protecting national security and are, among many things, battle-tested, self-motivated and safety-conscious—traits that translate well into a second career into the utility industry. By hiring veterans into the industry, we are ensuring the continued production and delivery of safe, reliable power to American homes and businesses, and that servicemen and women are continuing to protect national security as they work to deliver a product that fuels our lives and powers our economy.

Troops to Energy Jobs provides veterans with a roadmap for entry into highly skilled utility and engineering occupations within the energy industry. These jobs are both challenging and rewarding, and provide competitive compensation and professional growth opportunities. The Troops to Energy Jobs website is here to guide you on your path to a fulfilling energy career. Follow this ROADMAP step by step—take the time to explore the tools and resources available to you, and get any needed education and training along the way—and soon you'll find yourself at your goal.
