Veterans and Energy:

Opportunities in the Oil & Natural Gas Industry

A vast opportunity exists for the oil and natural gas industry to attract, retain, and develop lifelong careers for veterans in the industry. Veterans come to the civilian workforce with extensive technical and nontechnical skills gained through military experience and training. Many of these skills have direct applicability to the oil and gas industry, making them ideal candidates to fill the projected 1.3 million job opportunities available in the oil and natural gas industry.

Translating military training and experience to civilian jobs can be difficult for both veterans exploring career options and for civilian employers. The Veterans Energy Pipeline tool has been designed to help military trained applicants and civilian employers understand how military training and experience relate to the top civilian jobs in the oil and natural gas industry.
