Energy Commission Showcases Job Opportunities
Dozens of Sacramento area residents learned about employment opportunities at the California Energy Commission during its first Diversity Career Fair on April 29.
The Energy Commission is the state’s primary energy policy and planning agency. A variety of technical and non-technical skills are needed to meet California’s climate and energy goals, said Energy Commission Public Adviser Alana Mathews, who serves as the lead for the agency's Diversity Working Group.
Positions are available for college students, graduates, and professionals in a variety of areas including engineering, science, conservation, and associated fields, Mathews said. There are job opportunities in fields such as administration, legal, and public health.
For more than a year, the Energy Commission has been formalizing its efforts to reach out to underrepresented groups with the goal of increasing diversity in the energy sector. The job fair is part of the Energy Commission’s expanded outreach to women, minority, disabled veteran, and LGBT communities.
“It’s our belief that broader participation leads to greater innovation,” said Energy Commission Chair Robert Weisenmiller.
