Candidates: Here’s how to find an energy job with the impact you seek

Written by:


If you’re like most people who are on the job hunt these days, you’re looking for more than a paycheck. 

The chances are you want work that's fulfilling, where you can have an impact.

This phenomenon has been growing for years. In 2017, Deloitte found that millennials, in particular, feel a sense of accountability for a wide range of issues, and that “it is primarily in and via the workplace that they feel most impactful.” The next year, Reuters reported that “U.S. workers want employers to step up social impact.”

The desire for impact has grown even stronger in recent years. In a survey, nearly two-thirds of employees said Covid-19 has caused them to reflect on their purpose in life. In fact, one of the biggest driving forces behind the so-called “Great Resignation” is the desire for work that's more fulfilling. And impact is a hallmark of what makes people feel fulfilled in their jobs.

I’ve spent my career in energy -- first as a change leader inside oil and gas companies, and now as head of my own startup, ALLY. We’re leading the way in advancing DEI (diversity, equity, and inclusion) efforts across the industry and speeding up the energy transition. I know that working in this field can be enormously fulfilling. In energy, you can have a huge impact on the world.

Where to start? On our website, you have the chance to learn about all kinds of companies in this sector. Go beyond headlines and corporate-speak, and discover the cultures and people who are driving these organizations.
