CareerTech Horizon Podcast: “Power Up!”
When is the last time you thought about what goes into keeping power going to your home, uninterrupted?
Oklahoma’s thriving and evolving energy industry can be found in many forms. Whether it’s oil, gas, hydroelectric, wind, or solar energy, careers in this field can be lucrative and rewarding, but with a growing gap for skilled labor around the state, energy leaders hope more students sign on to technical programs to keep things going.
In this episode:
- Horizon travels the state to hear from energy leaders on the challenges they are facing, and the new programs in place to help alleviate the energy skills gap.
- Two students from very different backgrounds are profiled, and who are training for two very different jobs, but are ultimately working for the same goal.
- They climb hundreds of feet to get a good view of the wind energy industry, and learn about the technical and safety demands of the job.
- Listen in on a panel discussion, as Oklahoma’s energy experts discuss what parts of the industry will change in the coming years, and what parts will stay the same.
