Podcast Volume 4: Bridging to Higher Education

In our previous podcast we highlighted all that Cabot and others in the natural gas industry are doing to partner with educational programs and schools across Pennsylvania. Today we’re taking a closer look at the bridge program from schools in northeastern Pennsylvania to colleges and universities in the area – specifically at Lackawanna College School of Petroleum & Natural Gas.

Our commitment to education begins with the support of programs like Junior Achievement’s Careers in Energy and The Challenge Program, Inc. which are designed to get students practicing skills to carry them through to their career of choice. For those interested in becoming a part of the natural gas industry, LC’s School of Petroleum & Natural Gas offers a great opportunity to stay local for school, keep student loans to a minimum and then transition directly into the industry through various companies in the area like Cabot, Southwestern Energy, Williams, DTE and UGI.

For students pursuing higher education, the fundamental skills learned translate to a better understanding of the world around them, as well as crucial career skills like interviewing.

Check out the video below for more on Cabot’s involvement with the School of Petroleum & Natural Gas.
