​Military outreach

SMUD honors the men and women who proudly serve our nation
Thank you for your service to protect and defend our country! At SMUD, we hold the same values: leadership, community, integrity and ingenuity. The skills you learned in the military would be a great fit at SMUD: leadership, community, duty, loyalty, ingenuity, planning and preparation, mission execution, employee development, decision making and teamwork.

SMUD's commitment
SMUD is committed to reaching out to our veteran community and complying with the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA). This ensures that all who serve as reservists and National Guard members will have rights to leave and reemployment upon return from duty.

Why choose SMUD for your post-military career?
We serve our community by powering the Sacramento area with affordable, reliable and clean energy. Your commitment to service and community are what make you a great fit for SMUD.

We love our military employees.

Tips to apply
Applying for a civilian job is very different from enlisting and promoting within the military.

Please refrain from using military jargon or acronyms. Relate your military experience and training to the position you are applying for, and write in a way that the average civilian would understand. Focus on skills that relate to the position in which you are applying.

SMUD uses behavioral based interviewing. Use the STAR method to prepare for the interview: ST = Situation, task, or scenario; A = Actions taken, what was said and done, thoughts and feelings; R = Results, What was the outcome, how did the person feel about the outcome.
