For those looking for energy sector jobs...

With energy representing almost 15% of Western Pennsylvania’s economic output and employing approximately 100,000 people locally, the demand for qualified people to fill jobs in the energy sector is expected to accelerate rapidly. WPXI’s one-hour broadcast “Fueling Jobs” will explore where these jobs are and how workers (from executives to skilled laborers with a wide range of vocational and education backgrounds) can prepare to move into the booming energy arena.

“Fueling Jobs” will focus on employment opportunities within seven sub-sectors of energy-related industries, all of which play a major part in our local economy: nuclear energy, coal, natural gas, solar energy, wind energy, energy transmission and distribution, and intelligent (green) building.

“Fueling Jobs” is set to air during prime time on WPXI-TV on Wednesday, August 17 at 8 p.m., with encore airings on PCNC on August 18 at 9 p.m., August 19 at 9 p.m. and August 20 at 10 p.m.

He now has about 10 employees and making a six digit annual income! How great is that!

I do hope he manages to set aside some time and money to complete his education, though.
