Chicago Top Workplaces 2023

CHICAGO, IL, April 10, 2024S&C Electric Company, a leading innovator of resilient grid technology, today announced a partnership with DOD Skillbridge to provide training and job opportunities for U.S. military service members looking to transition to civilian work. The Skillbridge program connects service members with industry partners for real-world job experience while they are still on active military duty. The program offers specific industry training, apprenticeships, or internships during the last 180 days of military service.

“As a manufacturer and technology provider, S&C offers rewarding, long-term career opportunities to people of all experience and educational backgrounds,” said Jim Johnson Jr., S&C Chief Operations Officer. “Through this program, we will help our veterans acquire the skills they need to succeed here and develop a pipeline of talent between S&C and this uniquely talented group of potential team members. We want to ensure that people know this is a great place for our veterans to start their post-military careers.”

Current roles available through the S&C Skillbridge program include machinist positions (two-week training program) and field service technicians (60- to 90-day training program). S&C provides comprehensive training for these opportunities while candidates are still employed by the military. After that, program participants work at one of S&C’s designated locations to gain experience and evaluate the job as a post-discharge work option. The company may then formally hire candidates who have completed the program. Learn more about S&C Skillbridge program openings here.
