Serve With Us

Whether you’re a veteran, active duty member transitioning to civilian work, member of the National Guard, reservist, or a military spouse, we actively seek candidates who are ready to redeploy the skill sets they acquired in the military to join our workforce.

AEP appreciates the unique characteristics and talents you bring to any job. We value your commitment to teamwork, your keen attention to detail and your dedication to safety – skills essential to ensuring reliable energy service for our millions of customers. The technical abilities you refined during your service also make you an asset across the company, like in a power plant as an engineer, in a substation as a mechanic or in an office as a project manager or dispatcher.

If you’re currently enlisted, we understand the challenges of the transition process to a civilian career, and we’re here to help. Our talent acquisition team builds direct relationships with military bases across the country to provide veterans with a pipeline to careers at AEP. We’re also committed to increasing military hiring through successful partnerships with federal, state, local and non-profit agencies.

Looking for a career with growth opportunities and exceptional pay where company culture values military veterans? Whether you are transitioning from or have been out of the military for a while, your experience will help you excel on our team.
