Hi Jaelynn,

It is great to hear that you are thinking about life outside of college for when you graduate. You seem to have a great major and your options are quite wide. Let's say you get multiple job offers, you need to evaluate them on the promotion potential, learning potential, salary+benefits, working culture, work hours, leadership, and opportunities granted to you by your different jobs. I am not sure if you have already applied to jobs/already have offers so more information would be helpful.


You can work in industry where there are many different companies you can work for. I am sure you know the main energy companies so I won't list them all. Or you can follow the path I have pursued and that is go into consulting. As a consultant for a major firm (think "Big 4"), you will have the opportunity to work on many different projects with many different clients. All of the Big 4 firms service the energy sector so you will be able to be directly involved with your passion without a doubt. Consulting provides you with some flexibility and choice that is not found were you to pick working in industry. There are pros and cons of both, so you really need to think about what you want in the long terms. Industry is a more stable career but more limited while consulting is more flexible and agile but also a little less secure in you always being on an energy related project.


I hope this helps and I wish you the best of luck.


Best,

Austin

After your graduation you really have to think again about your vision, your inner satisfaction , what exactly you want.
If you want to earn money, easily you can earn money just start searching job.
If you have interest in research or higher study, you should go for it, now this time you should not think about money, It automatically will come, once u will start achieving your goals.
