Committing to a career.
With their family, friends and teachers looking on, thirty Milwaukee Public Schools (MPS) high school students officially announced they’re taking their talents to We Energies.
After a competitive recruitment season, these high school juniors will join We Energies as interns and apprentices in the company’s innovative line mechanic, gas distribution and design programs.
In a special ceremony, the teenagers signed their paperwork, tried on their new We Energies gear and committed to the programs.
The students will spend two years getting hands-on experience working with the tools and equipment that We Energies employees use on a daily basis.
In addition to earning a paycheck, the students are paired with a We Energies employee who serves as a life mentor. Students who successfully finish the program have the opportunity to join We Energies full time.
Recently, Spectrum News 1 Wisconsin caught up with the 2023 class of gas distribution apprentices on their first day on the job.
We Energies’ apprenticeships and internships are offered through a unique partnership with MPS. Each is designed to help students explore careers in energy, and help We Energies attract and retain the next generation of skilled and diverse employees.
