I want to congratulate you on considering future employment opportunities at the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC). While the past few years have been exciting, challenging and rewarding for those that work in the energy industry the future looks even more dynamic. FERC has been a leader in developing and implementing the policies that guide this country's energy markets.

Recent legislation in the energy industry such as the Energy Policy Act of 2005 illustrate the need for a workforce poised to meet the challenges of a rapidly changing sector of our national economy.
