Given the COVID-19 pandemic, the ensuing economic disruption, and the ongoing quarantine orders in effect, GreenGen has had to reconsider the structure of its Internship Program. Rather than suspending the program, for the 2020 Summer term, we will offer an unpaid internship that is viewed by GreenGen as being an educational opportunity rather than a part-time job. As such, the program will include training and orientation and focus primarily on learning and developing new skills and gaining a deeper understanding of concepts through hands-on application of the knowledge you learned in your coursework.* Other adjustments to the program such as working remotely will also be implemented until the pandemic restrictions have been lifted.
Goal of the Internship Program
This program is primarily concerned with helping interns develop skills and knowledge that will aid them in professional careers in the energy efficiency industry, our hope is that at the end of the term, this experience will prepare the intern to develop an understanding of how to create value through reducing operating costs in existing buildings, and give the intern a picture of what it is like to work in our industry. We seek interns for the fall and spring semesters, as well as for the summer.
What we are looking for in a candidate
We are looking for graduate and undergraduate students with a passion for real estate, operations, engineering, and cleantech who can bring demonstrated knowledge of energy efficiency technologies, renewable energy, energy procurement, or real estate to our team. Unique skills in energy modeling, Excel, PowerPoint, or engineering and design are a plus. We will consider candidates with any background, provided that the candidate can effectively express how they can create value for our team and how they can learn from their experience with GreenGen.
