The governors of Montana, South Dakota and Nebraska are joining NorthWestern Energy in celebrating Careers in Energy Week, Oct. 16-20, 2017.

With more than 1,500 employees, NorthWestern is a major employer in each of three states in its service territory. The energy company strives to provide engaging, high-quality jobs for people who in turn strive to make their communities better places to work and live.

"Developing and maintaining a dynamic workplace that provides meaningful work for employees as part of our overall mission of providing reliable, affordable energy services to our customers is a big part of what we are about at NorthWestern Energy," said Bobbi Schroeppel, vice president, Customer Care, Communications and Human Resources. "We are proud to be able to provide engaging employment opportunities across our service territory."

Montana Gov. Steve Bullock, in a letter, noted that Careers in Energy Week offers the opportunity to recognize the essential role the energy industry plays in the lives of Montanans.

"I commend NorthWestern Energy's efforts to drive economic growth and create good-paying jobs all across Montana," Bullock said. "NorthWestern Energy is an essential partner as we continue to develop energy solutions to protect our natural resources, grow our economy and create high-quality energy jobs."

South Dakota Gov. Dennis Daugaard and Nebraska Gov. Pete Ricketts each issued proclamations noting the special week. Part of those proclamations read:

"Energy provides careers to tens of thousands of residents who serve in every community. Energy careers range from line worker to engineer, construction specialist to accountant, chemist to environmentalist, maintenance laborer to executive - all valued and essential."
