The energy industry is quickly changing for the better as companies decarbonize their operations and embed climate based ESG principles into their business models. Many oil and gas companies are diversifying their portfolios by expanding into greener energy and developing compelling narratives about their role in the transition to a new global energy system.
At the same time, the sector is increasingly investing in the training and development of young people, creating education pathways and career-awareness initiatives in high schools and universities.
Additionally, there are huge global movements led by organizations that are fostering the next generation of energy industry employees at a high-school level, long before they are trained in a university or employed by a company. One such organization is Student Energy, which since 2009 has been empowering young people to accelerate the sustainable energy transition through a variety of initiatives, including university-based chapters and the largest student-led energy conference in the world.
As these changes take place, there will be more opportunities for people in the industry – whether those looking for a job, or those wanting to hire the best professionals. The International Renewable Energy Agency estimates that energy jobs worldwide will reach 100 million by 2050, about 40 million more than today, driven by the ongoing energy transformation and changing investment focus in the sector.
