“I want to be a rig supervisor.”
Thats not a statement someone usually hears from 18 year old girls about their desired career path. But folks in energy states will be hearing it a lot more as students like Nedy Ayala assess their future and make decisions about their college majors. Energy companies across the nation are working to diversify their workplace and attract more women to the energy industry. With thousands of open positions to fill, many students are looking to the energy industry to find a stable career path that provides a secure future for them and their families.
For students like Nedy, those efforts ultimately mean a fast-paced, good-paying career in the energy industry that will have her making more money than many of her peers that opt for the traditional 4-year liberal arts degree from a state university.
