By Casey C. Sullivan, Esq. on January 20, 2017 11:10 AM

If you feel like your career needs a jolt, maybe a switch to the energy sector is what you're looking for.

This week, as part of our affiliate relationship with Indeed, we're looking at openings in companies that handle everything from major dams to nuclear research. These gigs combine typical transactional law with a warren of government regulations and cutting-edge technology. They could be just what you need to give your work some spark.

1. Counsel, Lower Colorado River Authority

The LCRA may be in charge of parts of the Colorado River, but it's a creation of the Texas Legislature. The authority is the primary provider of electricity in central Texas and in charge of managing and protecting the lower Colorado River, including six dams that generate hydropower and create the Highland Lakes.

The LCRA is looking for an attorney to provide legal guidance, review documents, and represent the authority in transactions and proceedings. The position is intermediate to senior level, with transactional experience preferred.

2. Corporate Counsel, Indianapolis Power & Light

Who keeps the lights on in Indianapolis? You do. Or, you could. As corporate counsel at Indianapolis Power & Light, you'd be working with a company that serves nearly half a million power consumers and the largest utility of AES, one of the world's largest power companies.

As corporate counsel, you'd be in charge of assisting in litigation, directing outside counsel, providing advice on compliance, occasionally representing the company before courts and administrative bodies.

3. Attorney, General Atomics

Not scared of a little nuclear power? General Atomics is hiring. General Atomics' business touches on everything from nuclear power plants, to uranium mining, to drones, and they're looking for an attorney to join them in San Diego.

As an in-house lawyer, you'd work on reviewing contracts, identifying legal issues, participating in negotiations, assisting on joint venture agreements, and ensuring compliance.
