What kind of work do you want to do?

Hey. The best way to get started in energy is to start in the Field. Contact your local energy company and see how they run outage on their e generation site. Start by working outages at an execution manager, contractor coordinator and:or implementation manager. Each generation company will call it something different. The point is, they (energy company) will need help with projects, maintenance, and warranty project when the units come off line.

Hi! I’m a woman and an attorney, and my current $20 Casio just ran out of battery and I think it’s my sign to get something a little more professional. Im really unfamiliar with watches but have been lurking in this thread for a little and hoping I can get some good advice. I’ve found that many women’s watches are quartz (maybe due to the size?) and im not interested in a quartz movement. Any suggestions for a sub $2k women’s watch that is mid to small size and has a mechanical movement? Thanks!

Im planning visit Greece in July and need a Visa appointment in the US embassy in Athens but there are no appointments available. If I don’t get the new stamp on my passport I won’t be able to get back to the US. I read on their website that instead of appointments, the US embassy accepts the documentation via mail and then send you back the passport stamped. Has anyone heard of this before?

Hello all, I'm a junior level consultant in the ERP space. I'm passionate about energy and the growing renewables field. Given my current career, are there any careers I can pivot to in the future or will my ERP background hinder me from getting into the renewables industry?

Having worked with energy now for a decade, I find myself enjoying the craziness of it all: You're always two decisions (in Moscow or Riyadh) away from prices halving or doubling. War or no war is quite often a sensitivity, and adoption of EVs/renewables/biofuels will be between X and 10X. Find it hard to imagine doing strategy work in the less volatile/crazy domains - what could be more exciting than this 😋
