Go back to school with less paper

Back-to-school time, with new backpacks, fresh notebooks and sharpened pencils, is a great opportunity for you to take stock of your own paperwork and clutter. One easy way is to sign up for paperless billing:

  • Get an email when your bill is ready to view and pay.
  • Choose how you want to pay - online, by phone, automatically or at a payment center.
  • Add text or email payment alerts for an extra nudge.
  • Access up to 13 months of previous bills online.

CenterPoint Energy looks to hire more veterans

Approximately 2,000 military veterans, transitioning service members and military spouses attended CenterPoint Energy's RecruitMilitary Career Fair last month in downtown Houston to learn about employment opportunities and visit with more than 70 exhibitors.

"We recruit those who have military experience because their skills and knowledge would add value to a variety of areas within our organization," said Linda Graves, manager of talent acquisition for CenterPoint Energy. "If you've served our country, we know that you understand the level of commitment it takes to get the job done."

Sue Ortenstone, senior vice president and chief human resources officer, joined the Talent Acquisition team at the fair and spoke with the veterans about how their experience aligns with the company's core values. Learn more about our current employment opportunities.
