Veterans account for approximately ten percent of workers across energy sectors, higher than the national average of six percent. Many factors may contribute to this trend, including the high-demand for skilled workers; especially workers with knowledge of safety protocols, logistics, and technology deployment, teamwork and leadership experience, and those accustomed to project-driven (mission-oriented) assignments.  You may find additional information about important trends and skill sets for the 21st Century energy workforce in the 2019 U.S. 鹿鼎彩票代理 and Employment Report produced by the National Association of State 鹿鼎彩票代理 Officials (NASEO) and the 鹿鼎彩票代理 Futures Initiative (EFI).
