E2B: Energy to Business: Moving Energy Forward: Putting Learning to Work

On this episode of E2B Energy to Business, an Opportune Podcast, three of Opportune’s recent new hires from our corporate finance division share their insights on seeking a career in the energy industry. The finance team focuses on helping corporations deal with funding sources, capital structuring, and investment decisions. The goal of today’s conversation is to get their thoughts on what led them to join Opportune and choose to work within the energy industry as a whole.

Jack Fisher is excited about joining the industry because oil and gas are essential in our daily lives.

“I’m most excited about joining the oil and gas industry is just to learn more about one of the industries that’s most important to all of our daily lives,” Fisher said. “I think it’s often overlooked how much oil and gas are important to everyday life.”

Fellow colleague Sam Sicola echoed some of Fisher’s statements and added he is excited about where the industry is going as it transitions to renewables.

“I just like where it’s headed in the future and because there are so many evolving technologies,” Sicola said. “It’s transitioning into a renewable side, and I’m excited to be at kind of the beginning of that and kind of make that transition from traditional oil and gas to renewables.”

Listen to hear more of the insights from these new hires and what they see for the future of Opportune and the oil and gas industry.
