Why I Chose EIA
EIA is committed to recruiting, retaining and motivating a highly-skilled, diverse and productive workforce. Hear from some of our newest employees (in their own words) about why they chose EIA!
"I chose EIA because it is a place where one can make a positive contribution at an influential level, domestically and internationally, and can work with colleagues and other professionals who are among the best in their fields. The culture here nourishes people to do solid research that generates reliable, relevant, and useful information and to deliver honest and inspiring analyses. Creativity is highly encouraged and the agency is expanding its capabilities into current issues and topics, making it an even more lively and exciting place. The work is intellectually stimulating, accommodating individual interests and strengths, and allows for work-life balance. People around me are warm and have a good sense of humor. Plus, the training opportunities are out of the world!"
"I chose the EIA because I want to be a part of something I believe in. I believe in the mission of reporting unbiased, policy-neutral Energy analysis. I want to contribute meaningful analytic results that will ultimately support better, smarter, more effective Energy policies — and I believe working for EIA will give me that opportunity. EIA also allows me to scratch my technical "itch" by coding, database-querying and number-crunching - in addition to sending me to class to learn new software! Last, but not least, the culture at the EIA is priceless. The organization is full of highly-motivated intelligent individuals, who are given lots of freedom to pursue different analytic interests. EIA also strongly promotes great communication and provides numerous resources at my fingertips."
"I chose to work with the Energy Information Administration in order to fulfill my career objective of applying methods of economic and statistical analysis to inform policymakers aiming to address issues relating to our country's energy consumption and resource availability."
