Friendly Reminders:

Greetings from the Wharton MBA Career Management Energy Industry team! We are excited to support the Wharton Energy Network as we continue to see strong interest in the Energy sector here at Wharton. We have numerous resources available to assist you with your career and to connect you with talented students and alumni for opportunities within your organizations. 

Career Resources for MBA Alumni 

Wharton offers lifelong career management support for MBA alumni and provides 50 online resources designed to assist you in your job search. A sample of these resources include: the Wharton Alumni Job Board that markets over 4,500 annual positions, complimentary career advising, free access to Factiva, on-demand career programs, resume templates, and an Alumni Resume Book. Companies that have recently posted to the Wharton Alumni Job Board include BP, First Wind, and BrightSource Energy

Hire Wharton!

We have made great strides in developing relationships with companies interested in hiring from Wharton. This year, companies like ExxonMobil, Conoco Phillips and General Electric Company have established an on-campus presence hosting information sessions and interviews. Others like Shell, PG&E Corporation, and EnerNOC post to our job board and participate in the Wharton Energy Conference and other events. 

We have found alumni support to be critical in helping Wharton students and alumni secure high quality jobs. If you or your company has internship, full-time, or advanced level hiring needs, feel free to email these leads to mbajobs@wharton.upenn.edu or simply reach out to us directly.
