Electrical engineers are in high demand, especially in the energy industry. Utilities, generators, ISO/RTOs, and consulting companies are all hiring to varying degrees, and energycentraljobs.com has job postings for many of them.

Of course, there are many non-engineering roles, as well, particularly other analysts like myself. The amount of data out there is immense and growing, particularly due to the deployments of smart grid infrastructure.

I have great news. Your degree is relevant and it should be a piece of cake to find a job. Energy distribution, power analysis, and energy usage reduction have never been more relevant than they are today. Energy and distribution costs have reached a critical mass where companies are becoming very serious about increasing their expertize in house. My company is searching for people with your education and we cannot find them in sufficient quantities. What you must do is detail the skills related to power engineering that you excel at. Use Monster, Career Builder, and Linked in as posting sites and it should be a short amount of time before there is a wave of recruiters calling you.
