California is an energy policy trail blazer! The California Energy Commission plays a critical role in designing, implementing and crafting policies and programs to create a low-carbon economy. The California Energy Commission’s five basic responsibilities are: forecasting future statewide electricity needs and keeping historical data on energy; licensing power plants to meet those needs; promoting energy efficiency and conservation; developing renewable energy resources and alternative energy technologies; planning for and directing state response to energy emergencies. The Energy Commission also has specific and limited regulatory authority over the state’s 44 publicly owned utilities

I've written up the steps to applying for the entry-level Energy Analyst position at the California Energy Commission. Apply for the next Energy Analyst exam. Here is the 2019 exam schedule . The next application deadline is March 29 for the May 18 exam. To apply, fill out the STD 678 form (can be found linked on the schedule) and turn in physical copy by mail or in-person. You will receive two notifications by mail. First, notice that your application has been approved and second, confirmation of your exam date (with an explanation of the exam). Take the in-person exam. Wait to receive your exam results. (Can take 6-10 weeks from what I've heard.) Once you've passed the exam, then you can start to apply for job openings . Specific instructions & requirements for each opening are available on the linked page. I hope this will encourage more students to look into state jobs. Thanks to Maggie D!

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
