Careers in Energy Week - October 15-19, 2018

Careers in Energy Week will take place October 15-19, 2018. The week is focused on raising awareness about energy careers available in Wisconsin. View Governor's Proclamation

As an educator, you play a critical role in introducing students to possible career paths. We offer resources to make that easier for you. The Get Into Energy website has career profiles, videos, and skills tests related to energy careers. This PowerPoint presentation can be used to start a discussion and help students begin exploring careers in energy.

Our vision is to ensure that Wisconsin's energy industry is adequately staffed with a qualified and diverse workforce of engineering, craft, and technical workers to provide safe and reliable energy. Thank you for supporting this effort by introducing energy careers to students.
