Job Openings for Energy Analysts and Forecasters

[Update: I've created a page for jobs, so that it is easy for the readers to find those positions. Check them out HERE.]

During the past two years or so, the largest tag in this blog has been "jobs". From February 2013 to February 2015, I posted 56 jobs. Due to the increased demand for energy forecasters, I can no longer respond to the job posting requests in time. Therefore, I have decided to take a new approach to job posting.

You are invited to post your job openings using the Name/URL option in the comments field. Please be brief about your job postings. Rather than pasting the whole job description, I would recommend you just listing the job title, company and a link to the job description or application site. In addition, you can also provide your contact information for the readers to contact you if you are the hiring manager or recruiter. I will moderate the comment field.

I'm posting the BigDEAL recruiting message first as an example.

Happy recruiting and job hunting!
