NYPA Launches Recruitment Website
March 21, 2008

The New York Power Authority (NYPA) has launched a new recruitment website in response to a major challenge facing the nation’s electric utility industry–the growing shortage of entry-level and experienced personnel in engineering and other disciplines.

The Careers@NYPA website was designed to provide potential applicants with a one-stop resource containing detailed information about the Power Authority, the nation’s largest state-owned electric utility and one of New York’s leading electricity suppliers. With the state’s current and future energy needs a critical concern, NYPA must compete with other utilities for qualified employees in a variety of technical, professional and administrative fields.

The staffing shortages being experienced throughout the energy sector are partly the result of demographics, since much of America’s workforce is rapidly approaching retirement age. This was noted at a November 2007 hearing of the U.S. Senate
Committee on Energy and Natural Resources. Recruiters also point to recent trends such as downsizing that have discouraged young people from pursuing careers in the utility industry.

To help job-seekers better understand the diverse opportunities available, the Careers@NYPA website includes more than a dozen employee testimonials showing Power Authority staff members at various jobs throughout the state. It also contains information about NYPA facilities and the communities where they are located,
internship and employee training programs, as well as work/life-balance policies and benefits.
