A friend pointed me to a great article about the North Carolina State nuclear engineering program. Campus reactor leads the way in ‘nuclear renaissance’.
Here is a quote from the article that should make young technical types sit up and take notice:
Jacobson echoed Ferrell’s statements, when she also added the market for hiring at Progress Energy is improving following the recent purchase of Florida Energy.
“You don’t normally absorb a company the same size as yourself,” Jacobson said. “We had to borrow a lot of money from the market, but this made us more flexible as an employer. Now we’ll hire roughly 1,000 entry-level graduates by December to fill those positions vacated by our retiring senior employees.”
There is a lot more in the article. Highly recommended reading!
