Careers in EVs & Charging

Energize your future with a career in Electric Vehicles & Charging

A career working with electric vehicles (EVs) and EV charging stations is a really smart choice for job seekers who want to set themselves up for a rewarding, stable, and successful future—and even if you don’t know much about things like electrical work, EVs, and charging stations now, that doesn’t mean you can’t learn!

You’ve probably been seeing a lot of EVs on the road recently. That’s because EVs are significantly more energy efficient, require fewer repairs, often cheaper than a tank of gas when you charge your car with electricity. Not only that, EVs do not have any tailpipe exhaust, so they can help us all breathe cleaner air. These benefits make EVs an increasingly popular choice for drivers—and an industry that will be in demand for job seekers for many years to come.
