Looking for energy employees of tomorrow
As American Transmission Co. continues to grow, we continue to seek talented individuals to strengthen our team. To do so, we need to help generate interest in the energy industry.
We believe in supporting educational programs that help foster awareness of our industry and develop talented young people. We do this by offering a strong internship program, supporting college scholarships, and through involvement with middle and high school Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics programs.
To help promote jobs in our industry, ATC has joined the Wisconsin Energy Consortium. Our group brings together utilities, education and the Department of Workforce Development to address our industry’s workforce needs.
Every year, the consortium celebrates Careers in Energy Week, which will be held this year from Oct. 17 to 21. Our goal for Careers in Energy Week is to encourage students at the high school level to explore and consider careers in energy.
The Wisconsin Energy Workforce Consortium will host a line mechanic preview day at Milwaukee Area Technical College in Mequon on Tuesday, Oct. 18. Milwaukee area students will see demonstrations of line mechanics at work and learn more about MATC’s utilities programs.
In addition, Gov. Scott Walker has proclaimed Oct. 17 to 21 “Careers in Energy Week” and Secretary of Wisconsin Workforce Development Ray Allen will deliver the proclamation in person at the event.
As a consortium we are excited to come together to promote the many careers that make up our industry, so we can continue to have a strong pipeline of talent well into the future.
