Veterans

Consider the energy industry for the next phase of your career.

There is no better way to honor our nation’s veterans than to provide support for a successful transition to civilian life. Military personnel bring strong values and experiences that are honed during their service time. TEP recognizes these attributes and encourages our veterans to join us on the road to success.

Your roadmap to a career in energy

SkillBridge

Veterans are critical to our company’s talent pipeline. Their experience and training has taught them the value of teamwork, communication, critical thinking and more importantly, leadership.

The SkillBridge program provides retiring and transitioning Service members the opportunity to participate in internship training programs while transitioning out of military careers.

SkillBridge matches civilian opportunities to your job training and work experience at the end of your military duty, while the Department of Defense covers military pay and benefits during a service member’s time in the program.

It’s a win-win. Military members, who are integrated within our organization, gain valuable corporate skills training and civilian workforce experience. And veterans help us build a more diverse workforce, with different backgrounds and experiences that foster innovation, creativity and productivity.

You may be eligible to participate in SkillBridge if you have 180 days of service or fewer remaining prior to your date of separation and you have at least 180 continuous days of active service. Click here to apply for a Military Skillbridge Internship.

Veterans Business Resource Group

The UNS Veteran Business Resource Group is a key part of our effort to engage, recruit and retain military veterans. The group creates a forum for veterans to connect and build relationships, increases morale and helps advance our company’s commitment to inclusion and engagement.

In recognizing the strategic and operational skills of our military veterans, the Veteran Business Resource Group helps influence professional development while providing support and mentorship for military veteran employees.

In addition to the Veterans Business Resource Group, TEP provides a number of dynamic learning pathways in support of employees at all levels.

"I was treated more like a hire than an intern. I was given the opportunity to choose between several departments." Doyace W., TEP Engineering Project Manager
