Subject: Internship available with Consumers Energy
I’ve got a job listing to pass along, if you’ve got anyone in PW still looking for an internship. I know it’s rather late notice and many people already have their summer plans set, but yesterday we had a position open up for an intern in Strategic Communications. I’m not involved with that department (I’m in Operations as opposed to Regulatory & Public Affairs), but it looks like a fantastic opportunity for someone with experience in video production. It initially caught my eye because we don’t have many internships that aren’t in engineering, but the description made it particularly noteworthy: “The CSVP Intern must be able to analyze and break down information into more concise and clear messages.” That sounds like aperfect match for a PW major to me.

I’ve included the details on the listing below and the link to apply is at the bottom. If anyone has questions about the company, the area, or really just anything else, feel free to pass my info along. I’d be more than happy to chat with them!
