El Paso Electric 11th Annual Summer College Internship is Officially in Session

El Paso Electric’s (EPE) Summer College Internship Program consists of 10 college students this year. Launched back in 2011, EPE’s paid internship focuses on providing students with professional development opportunities, work experience, and volunteer opportunities.

The Summer Internship Program has been redesigned to ensure that students have more time working with their departments offering them a more hands-on experience, and complete volunteer opportunities to better understand the power of corporate social responsibility working with organizations like the YWCA El Paso Del Norte.
“The Summer Internship Program continues to evolve and this year we want our interns to be more involved within EPE departments that will ultimately enhance the students’ skillsets, acquiring more experience, and connecting professionally,” says EPE Senior Human Resources Generalist Aimee Saldivar. “The program also focuses on the importance of giving back to the community and the role EPE has in serving the community where we work and live.”
The Internship Program is designed to help students become the next future leaders in the Region.
“The summer internship program helps EPE propel our Region’s growth by contributing to the development of the next generation of leaders in the workplace,” shares President and Chief Executive Officer, Kelly A. Tomblin. “We benefit from offering paid internships because it attracts the best and brightest to our industry and allows our students to learn and focus in a concentrated way that benefits our customers. We are proud that many EPE interns go on to become impactful EPE leaders.”
Through early August, EPE interns will be working across different departments including accounting, human resources, corporate communications, power generation, distribution, system operations and others.
“I am most excited to learn about the accounting of a utility company because in my previous internships I did general business expenses, so it is really interesting to learn about the day-to-day utility’s operations of El Paso Electric,” says EPE Summer Finance Intern Nicholas Cisneros.
