There’s an effort in Charlotte to expand the focus of being a banking city and diversifying the industries Charlotte is known for. One of the industries coming into the forefront is the Energy industry, which is undergoing some major growth these days. The industry is facing an upcoming shortage of qualified workers due to the expectation that a large percentage of the current workforce will soon retire. This means that Energy is becoming a more popular career track for young people and people ready for a career change. We’ll talk about some of the different facets of the Energy industry and about future growth projections for jobs in this industry here and around the country.
