College grads with degrees in sales, engineering and field service may want to look at Siemens. The electrical engineering company's USA division has more than 400 vacant positions in its building technologies division across the nation. The division works with cities across the country to reduce energy costs and save money by lowering each city’s carbon footprint.
With a recent study commissioned by Siemens and conducted by the Economist Intelligence Unit reporting that urbanization accounts for 75 percent of the world’s energy consumption, the need for employees to devise energy efficient solutions is stronger than ever. Open positions in the building technologies division are based in 39 states across the U.S., requiring skills and/or experience in the areas of building systems and energy efficiency; field service and sales; installation and project management; product marketing; and electrical and mechanical engineering.
“Buildings are actually the world’s biggest energy users, even ahead of transportation and industry, consuming one-third of the electricity in the U.S.,” said Daryl Dulaney, president and CEO of Siemens Industry, Inc. “Siemens is looking to hire 400 new employees to support sales as well as the subsequent engineering and servicing of buildings targeted for retrofit or modernization to lower energy consumption, reduce CO2 emissions, and improve the bottom line for city budgets.”
