As global energy demands evolve to meet changing needs, Solar Austin is thrilled to expand our efforts to allow students of all backgrounds access to renewable energy careers. Through our internship matching program, we facilitate career pathways for underrepresented students, including female students and students of color in Texas’ clean energy sector.
Careers in clean energy involve much more than project construction. Our partner companies are seeking to employ and mentor interns in areas such as engineering, marketing, sales, design, IT, etc. We are currently seeking students who are interested in the clean energy industry, but who need help getting their foot in the door. You do not need previous experience in the sector to be placed in an internship!
Solar Austin is recruiting students for the following positions for the Spring 2022 semester: Business Development Analyst Intern, Solar Sales Intern, Supply Chain Analyst Intern, Project Management Intern, Customer Experience Management, Marketing and Social Media Management, and more! Each internship is hosted by a regional clean energy company.
Applying to this program does not ensure final placement, but all applicants will have access to program services, such as resume and interview prep with a professional energy recruiter and facilitated diversity workshops alongside local employers. Spring internships can be part-time or full-time with flexible hours. Interested students will be interviewed at the end of October, with internships starting in January and concluding in April. All internships are paid a base living wage ($15/hour).
Please apply through Solar Austin’s website. Be sure to have your resume and prompted cover letter ready. https://solaraustin.org/interested-in-becoming-a-pathways-intern/
