Troops to Energy Jobs Program

The unemployment rate among post-9/11 Veterans is in double digits. Couple that with the statistic that in the next five years 40 percent of the workers in the nation’s energy workforce are set to retire or leave through attrition and you come up with the national program: Troops to Energy Jobs.

The jobs program is managed by the Center for Energy Workforce Development (CEWD) and is designed as an ongoing process of outreach, recruiting, education, and training to create a pathway for military personnel to transition from the service into civilian careers in the energy field.

Steve Dunwoody, a Veteran and Department of Energy employee, recently wrote about the pilot program. The partnership hopes to bridge the Veteran employment gap and increase opportunities for Veterans in the energy sector.
