The Department of Energy Wants You: The Department of Energy Information Administration is looking for STEM employees in the following areas: engineers, operations research analysts, industry economists, survey and mathematical statisticians. “Starting General Schedule salaries range from $43,057 to $126,245, however, executives can earn upwards of $183,300.” Find details here: http://www.eia. gov/about/careers/

• The Department of Energy’s student internships, Student Stipend-based Internship Programs in scientific research, administration, and business fields typically occur in the summer for 8–10 weeks, and Department of Energy Scholars Program introduces students or recent college graduates to DOE’s mission and operations here: student-programs-and-internships

• The Mickey Leland Energy Fellowship is a 10-week summer internship for women and under-represented minority students that are pursuing academic majors in science, technology, engineering, and math. The program is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Fossil Energy. internships: find-internships

Awesome Jobs in Energy:

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics provides background on each of these occupations. The predictable element in energy is that employer hiring demand is predicated upon the price of oil and gas.

Geoscientists study the planet’s physical aspects, including composition, structure, and processes. The nation’s 38,200 geoscientists lead exploration teams to uncover possible excavation points to produce fossil fuels. An entry-level education is a bachelor’s degree, and the job outlook forecasts a faster-than-average 16 percent growth through 2022. The estimated median wage is $90,890.

Industrial engineers, who work in the field and office, eliminate wastefulness, which is vital to the energy production process. An entry-level education is a bachelor’s degree. The job outlook forecasts five percent growth through 2022. The estimated median wage is $78,860. Check out the Institute of Industrial Engineers.

Petroleum engineers, who work in offices, research labs, and the field, use many different techniques to extract oil and gas from below ground or water. An entry-level education is a bachelor’s degree, and the job outlook forecasts a faster- than-average 26 percent growth through 2022. The estimated median wage is $130,280.

Petroleum Engineers: The American Chemical Society says that petroleum engineers “apply chemistry, physics, math, geology, and engineering principles” to find means to identify favorable exploration areas, develop access, and refine oil into aviation or auto fuel.

Energy chemists “work with crude oil and the products derived from it.” Chemical engineers earn $134,000 annually, and an energy chemist can earn $114,000. Check out the American Chemical Society’s Oil and Petroleum Careers page: chemistry-careers/oil-petroleum.html

Mathematical statisticians analyze coal, energy, electricity, and natural gas production and reserves for public, private, and nonprofit organizations. They delve into energy distribution and use data science to find the weaknesses and strengths of the energy infrastructure.
