Share Employment Opportunities: Internships and Entry-Level Jobs for Collegiate Wind Competition Competitors

The U.S. Department of Energy Collegiate Wind Competition provides undergraduate students with real-world experience as they prepare to enter the workforce by challenging teams from a variety of programs across the nation to:

  • Design, build, and test a wind turbine
  • Plan and financially analyze a wind farm.

Due to its interdisciplinary nature, the Competition draws students from a variety of programs, including engineering, computer science, business, economics, communications, energy systems, physics, integrated science and technology, and environmental studies. Competition organizers desire to connect this workforce pool with wind industry opportunities.

You can support this effort by sharing wind-related internship and entry-level job opportunities suitable for students and recent graduates with Heidi Tinnesand, a Competition organizer. These opportunities will then be disseminated among Competition participants.
