College Intern Program
Over the past two years NextEra Energy has welcomed well over 200 college students to participate in its summer college internship program. The purpose of the internship program is to provide a meaningful and productive learning experience for each student employed with NextEra Energy while building a talented and diverse pipeline of future employees.
NextEra Energy offers a range of opportunities for qualified individuals. The goal is to develop new talent and test candidates for a right fit for future, full-time employment by offering relevant work experience on challenging projects and assignments. Interns must have a GPA of 3.0 or higher and be enrolled currently as full-time students in a bachelor's degree or higher in the appropriate course of study. Most internships will last eight to 12 weeks. Once the internship is completed, students will be evaluated for possible rehire the following summer or full-time employment. We're looking for the best and the brightest college students to help shape the future of clean, renewable energy.
With the growing need to hire trained employees to fill future job openings, FPL has worked with local communities and state colleges to create job training programs.
