Engineers are vital to our business and are helping us meet energy needs by working on some of the most exciting industry projects in the United States. They are solution-oriented drivers of innovation and critical thinkers.

Williams supports engineering programs at universities across our operating areas, and we were pleased to attend or sponsor several campus-based activities.

At West Virginia University, Williams was a corporate sponsor for E-Week professional development activities, including sponsorship of a new program called Career Closet, which provides business professional clothing to students going on job interviews or to career fairs. Williams employees presented a session about how to make good first impressions, resume writing and career fair etiquette.
