PUD Engineering Internship Available

January 25, 2013 – Columbia River People’s Utility District (PUD) is now accepting applications for a utility engineering summer internship.

The PUD’s internship program offers local students a chance to learn about utility careers through direct work experience. This year, the PUD is offering a summer internship for a local high school or college student who is interested in becoming an electrical engineer or field engineering technician.

“Over the next decade, the electric utility industry will see the retirement of over half of its workforce,” said PUD General Manager Kevin Owens. “We hope this internship program will help us attract the best and the brightest students to our industry.”

Applications are available online or at the PUD office. The application deadline is March 15, 2013.
