Consider a career in the energy field! Gov. Mitch Daniels has declared Oct. 17-21 “Careers in Energy Week.” Your local electric cooperative may be a place you’d like to work when you get older.

Many times what you do in the future is based on what you like to do now. Ask yourself these questions and see what electric co-op careers might work for you.
