Employment opportunities in Virginia with great pay and benefits are now available! About a year ago, like you, I was searching for a good paying job. But I was discouraged at my results - things weren’t looking good. I started searching at
Yahoo Hot Jobs
but the search results were mostly low paying jobs that just didn’t pay what I needed to make to stay afloat. It seemed like I kept running into dead ends.
I don’t have a college degree, and job opportunities seemed to be limited, but I happened to meet an old friend (who had a high paying job) and that meeting changed my life. I don’t remember exactly what he said, but it was something about
power plant jobs
and a test, but the thing that got me interested was the mention of high pay without a degree. And you know what I discovered? Utility companies are hiring hundreds of workers throughout the country and they don’t even require a college degree!
I think you should seriously consider applying for great paying jobs in Virginia that are being offered by utility companies as baby-boomers retire. Their retirement are causing a worker shortage for power plant jobs. We’re talking about quality jobs that offer great pay and benefits, with opportunity to advance and build a real career.
In just a moment I will tell you how this job opportunity came to exist, but for now, here are a few of the positions available to both men and women as a utility company employee: Secretary, Vehicle Attendant, Heavy Equipment Operator, Boiler Operator, Vehicle Attendant, Meter Mechanic, Meter Reader, Payroll Clerk, Trainer, Lineman, Human Resources Clerk, and Janitor. There are many other positions open and this list is just an example of possibilities for power plant careers and power plant employment.
The time is right to get into this field of high paying
jobs in Virginia
. Here’s why our utility companies are making so many career positions available to people like us without a college degree, and that includes jobs in Alexandria.
• As the population of Virginia increases, so does the demand for electricity.
• Existing power plants can’t keep up with demand and therefore need extensive upgrades
• Power plants are either under construction or in the upgrading stages in the state of Virginia
• Thousands of miles of power lines have to be replaced every year due to aging and the weather
• Because of an aging workforce and mandatory retirement rules, the utilities are losing hundreds of experienced workers every year, and they have to be replaced
• There is a company called
in Alexandria, and since their inception they've been growing (worldwide), even as the economy heads South. Because of their growth, guess what? Their demand for electricity also indirectly heads North.

And you'll find this description on their
Motley Fool employment benefits page
: "Work like a grown-up. A Fool's work is never done, but that doesn't mean we work all the time. As a general rule, Fools start their day about 9:30 am. Lots of Fools work a standard 40-50 hour workweek. But we recognize that everyone is different. We try to stay flexible. Working with your supervisors, you can customize your work schedule to meet the particular demands of your job."
And as I am sure you can imagine, power plants are complex and require a lot of people to keep them running, so the utility companies simply must create new employment opportunities in Virginia to help manage our power plant system. And the laws of supply and demand are working in your favor and are making these high paying jobs in Virginia relatively easy to qualify for.
Although these high paying jobs don’t require a degree, passing a test called the
could increase your chances of getting hired. Please
don’t let one test be a deterrent to keep you from applying for jobs in Virginia. The test isn’t very difficult and this site has great POSS Test practice questions which will help you pass the POSS exam. So don’t worry about that at all. It’s just not a big deal! In my case, just a few hours a week of prep time was all it took.
After preparing for the test, another thing to prepare for was a job interview. I researched
job interview questions
job interview tips
to make sure that I interviewed well, and I guess I did because I got the job that I applied for! Please consider this opportunity, because with all of my job searching, I never found anything better than employment in the power plant industry – not even close!
