Good news for local students and employers! This year the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center’s Workforce Development Division collaborated with the New England Clean Energy Council  to launch the Massachusetts Clean Energy Internship Opportunity Program (PDF) to facilitate the placement of students and recent graduates who are seeking career opportunities in clean energy through paid summer internships.
 
Through this initiative, clean energy companies across the Commonwealth will place as many as 100 interns in paid internships. We’ve placed over 50 students so far! Companies interested in hiring summer interns are able to access stipends of up to $15 per hour or $6,000 for up to ten weeks for summer interns.  Internships provide meaningful employment experience for students including networking opportunities, mentoring from host employers, and industry knowledge.
 
EnerNOC through the internship program, has hired two interns for their network operations department. These interns will work closely with staff in monitoring a network of 5,000-plus remote demand response devices that communicate via cellular, DSL, LAN and VPN. In addition, interns will be identifying, correcting, and/or escalating data quality issues pertaining to sites, energy meter data, and contact information.

Diversified Construction Services LLC in Amherst, which has recently been developing cost-effective alternatives to roof-mount solar installations, has hired engineering students.
 
Some of participating companies have placed interns in communications and marketing positions. Mass Energy hired two interns to research, develop, and aid in the implementation of its marketing strategy, promote green power choices to Massachusetts consumers, and help staff maintain relationships with over 8,000 customers.
 
And this is just a sampling of what’s possible.  I encourage all students to get engaged with clean energy industry and explore the many different possibilities in this growing market.  Whether you’re a film, marketing or public relations, political science, engineer, or some other major, there is something here for you because in Massachusetts, it’s all here!
