The nuclear industry is really powering up.
Where the jobs are: Richland, Wash.

Although business slowed earlier in the year, activity in the nuclear arena has not stopped, according to Human Resources Specialist Michael Williams. Now, Energy Northwest is aiming to get a jump start on their competition by scooping up top talent as the nuclear industry gains momentum again. This energy company is currently hiring from entry level to management positions including senior reactor operators, nuclear training supervisors, operation supervisors, design engineers, project managers and planners.

But the nuclear field is probably not a good choice for career changers. Some experience will go a long way here, Williams says. "We want people who have worked in a nuclear plant environment -- that would help them." Degrees in mechanical and electrical engineering or nuclear technology would be a plus, Williams said.
