Answer another call of duty

Pride. Duty. Honor. Discipline

They're the foundations of military service and of Southern Company. After you've served your country, turn your military training into an opportunity to serve our 4.5 million customers.

Veterans are a natural fit for Southern Company because the cultures of the military and our industry are very similar - both exemplify dedication, commitment to safety, teamwork and excellence in all they do. This is why many veterans who have joined Southern Company are not just participants, but leaders, in our company.

Veterans currently account for 10 percent of the company's more than 27,000 employees. The company's military recruitment and development efforts have earned Southern Company a designation as the highest-ranked utility on G.I. Jobs' Top 100 Military Friend Employers list for six consecutive years. The company has also been recognized as a Top 10 Company for Veterans by DiversityInc., a Most Valuable Employer by CivilianJobs and a Best for Vets Employer by Military Times EDGE.

Additionally, Southern Company is a founding partner of Troops to Energy Jobs program, supports the Joining Forces initiative, participates annually in more than 30 military recruitment events and partners with military transition centers across the country. Today, Southern Company and its subsidiaries are the only electric utilities in the nation to partner with the U.S. Army, U.S. Navy, U.S. Marine Corps and U.S. Air Force to develop innovative energy projects both on and off base.
