Why work at a cooperative?
Electric cooperative careers offer purpose
Every day in this country, more than 71,000 men and women go to work at America’s electric cooperatives to keep the lights on for 42 million energy consumers in 47 states. It’s challenging work, but in addition to a paycheck, electric cooperative employees go home each night knowing they’ve helped make their communities better places to live.
Electric cooperatives power our homes, schools, farms and businesses – and they keep rural America connected to the global economy. Principles, not profits are the driving force behind everything electric cooperatives do. As an employee of an electric cooperative, you’re working to serve your friends, family and neighbors who collectively own the cooperative.
Who are we?
A lineworker high atop a pole is the first image that comes to mind for most people who think about electric power association employees. It’s true lineworkers make up the largest segment of the total co-op workforce—approximately 25 percent—but it takes a variety of talents to keep a cooperative running smoothly.
Information technology and engineering are two rapidly growing career opportunities. Other in-demand career paths include finance, electrical engineering, energy advisors, communications and marketing, purchasing, administrative support, and human resources.
For people who enjoy the rural quality of life but want to explore other parts of the country, an electric cooperative career might be the perfect option. There are more than 900 electric cooperatives in the United States, and combined they serve 56 percent of the nation’s land mass.
Co-op lines stretch across every region, climate and geographic feature America has to offer, and each cooperative reflects the character of the community it serves. No matter what prospective employees might be seeking, they’re sure to find it somewhere in the electric cooperative network.
Not-for-profit, member-owned cooperatives like Victory Electric offer careers that allow employees to make a difference in the communities they serve. Cooperatives are guided by a set of principles that put people first and offer fulfilling work to those who enjoy serving others.
