Thank you for your interest in a career at Alliant Energy. We’ve provided information to frequently asked questions about the career application process.

How do I apply?

Visit our online application system and view available careers. To apply, click on the position you’re interested in and select “Apply.” To get started you will need to create an account using an email address and password. This can be done by clicking on “Sign In” found in the upper hand corner. Or, once you click on "Apply," you will be prompted to create an account.  

Can I email or mail you my resume?

We cannot accept emailed, faxed or mailed resumes or applications.

Who can I contact if I need assistance due to a disability?

If you have a disability and believe you need a reasonable accommodation to search for a job opening or submit an online application, please call (608) 458-8458. The phone number is to assist job seekers whose disability prevents them from being able to apply online. Only messages left for this purpose will be returned. Messages left for other purposes, such as following up on an application or technical issues unrelated to a disability, will not receive a response. We appreciate your interest in career opportunities at Alliant Energy Corporation! 

How do I notify you if I change my address or phone number?

Update your contact information in our online application system by logging into your account with your email and password. Scroll down to “My Account” and select “Update Contact Information” to change your address and phone number. To change your email, select “Edit Account Settings.”

How can I make sure I find out about new job openings?

Use the “Job Alert” feature found in the upper right corner. Select “Create Job Alert” to save your preferred search criteria. You will be automatically notified of new positions that match your areas of interest as they get posted.

I applied for a job yesterday. I see another job that I want to apply for today. Will I have to fill out all my information again?

Once you’ve created an account, all future applications are quick and easy by using the information you’ve already entered.

I’m an Alliant Energy employee. Where do I apply?

Alliant Energy employees should apply through the Career Section found under YourHR on The Point. 

Do I have to answer all of the questions?

It is best to complete every question to make sure we have all the information about your education, skills and experience.

Can I attach my resume instead of pasting it into the form?

Yes. After you select a job and select “Apply”, you will be asked to upload your resume. Some information from your resume will be reflected in the application.

Are there any rules about attaching files?

Please use your own name when you title the document (e.g., Jane Doe Resume) and do not use any special characters, like () [] {} - , ‘ ; / \ and <>. Also note that file attachments cannot be larger than 2 MB and must have a file extension of .doc, .docx, .rtf, .pdf or .txt.

What if I don’t have my own computer or email account?

State job-service agencies and most community libraries have public-access computers you can use to apply online. The staff at these locations can assist you with setting up a free email account.

What if I forget my login information for the online application portal?

Your login ID is your email address. If you forget your password, select “Forgot your password?”. The password will be reset and sent to the email address on file.

I can’t access the online application system. Now what?

Please make sure your browser pop-up blocker is turned off. Or our system may be down at times for maintenance and/or other technical support issues. If you are unable to access the online system, please try again at another time.

After applying, when can I expect to receive a response?

You'll receive an automated email indicating that your application has been submitted. Once the application deadline expires, we will review each submission. If there is a match between your qualifications/career goals and the position, an Alliant Energy representative will contact you for next steps. Please note that any position that is part of a union does require consideration of internal applicants first per contract, which may cause delays.

How do I prepare for an interview?

At Alliant Energy, the interviews may include job-specific and behavioral questions. In preparation, you’ll want to consider your skill set and experiences, matching them to the requirements of the positions as indicated in the job description. Prepare a number of examples of situations you have experienced that can be applied to various behavioral questions, keeping in mind our corporate competencies:

  • Business acumen
  • Change management
  • Communication
  • Customer focus
  • Decision making
  • Leadership
  • Results orientation
  • Teamwork

Will I have to take a drug test or physical?

If an offer is extended, you will be asked to complete a drug test for all positions and a physical if applicable.

Will you do a background security check?

Yes, we do a thorough background security check.
