Energy companies including those operating in various stages of oil and gas development, utilities and other energy-related businesses face an imminent wave of retirements that have many working hard to smooth the transition into a new generation of employees.
In additional to science-based fields like geology and engineering, large companies need people to fill financial and legal roles as well, a reality former Duke Energy CEO Jim Rogers reinforced in comments made during the recent Columbia University Center on Global Energy Policy Spring Conference.
