Are you a veteran or a currently serving Guard or Reserve member looking for a challenging and rewarding civilian career at a company that values your military experience?

Xcel Energy has over 1,400 employees who have served in the armed forces, so we know what veterans can offer: the ability to make decisions in dynamic environments, experience on high-performance teams, resilience, leadership, respect for procedures, and the ability to transfer skills to new tasks and situations. We value these skill sets, and we know you have them!

Veterans who become Xcel Energy employees can participate in our Military Ombudsmen for Veterans and Employees (MOVE) affinity group and take advantage of a tuition reimbursement program that can be combined with your GI Bill benefits.

The leadership and work ethic that I learned in the military has greatly served me at Xcel Energy because it has enhanced my ability to focus and pay attention to detail- both of which are needed to make the projects I work on a success.

I can use my background from what I learned on the ship to decide how to do it today, on the commercial side. I am very lucky to work alongside other veterans at Prairie Island. No matter what service we went through, we all have a common core of work ethics and a process to get things done.
