In a special ceremony, the teenagers signed their paperwork, tried on their new We Energies gear and committed to the program in front of their biggest fans — family, friends and teachers.
As part of the program, the students will spend two years getting hands-on experience working with the tools and equipment that our line mechanics use on a daily basis. In addition to earning a paycheck, the students are paired with a We Energies employee who acts as a life mentor. Students who successfully finish the program may have the opportunity to join We Energies full-time.
The line mechanic internship is one of three unique internship and apprenticeship programs offered by We Energies and MPS. Each is designed to help students explore careers in energy, and help We Energies attract and retain skilled and diverse employees.
