PUC Job Fair Highlights Opportunities for Veterans
27 Dec 2018
Early in November, UGI participated in a job fair for veterans sponsored by the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission (PUC). The event was part of the PUC’s #UtilitiesCareers campaign and kicked off a month-long PUC tribute to Pennsylvania veterans.
“We are surrounded by #UtilityCareers opportunities, but they often ‘hide in plain sight’ because job-seekers are unaware of the options available to them or unsure who to contact,” said PUC Chairman Gladys M. Brown. “Connecting veterans and other skilled candidates with these jobs — which offer good wages, growth opportunities and the chance to make a difference in our communities — benefits us all.”
According to the PUC’s press release announcing the job fair, Pennsylvania ranks #8 in the nation in the number of veterans between 18 and 64 years old, and the state’s workforce includes 266,000 veterans. About 13,000 state veterans are currently without work — and others may be struggling to find the right civilian-sector job for themselves or their families.
