All educators understand the importance of getting kids to think about their futures – and it’s never too early to start. Because we are Georgia Power, we love for students and parents to learn about careers in energy.
In elementary school, kids start to think about what they want to be when they grow up. Do they like trucks, solving problems, or learning about science? At this age, it’s fun to take a peek into how their interests might one day translate into a fulfilling career.
Middle school is time to really dig in and explore. Kids aren’t quite grown up yet, but their interests and passions are in full effect. What do they like to do in their spare time? Are they aware that an interest in energy can turn into a great career path? It’s important for middle schoolers to be aware that the classes they take now will be helpful to them as adults.

In high school, it’s important for teens to have a plan for post-graduation, and it’s never too early to start planning. Going straight into a job, technical college, or a 4-year university are all great options depending on a student’s interests and goals. No matter what they choose, there are many careers in energy to consider, all requiring different sets of skills, education, and training.
