Energy Department Actively Recruiting

leave a comment »

The United States Department of Energy is changing the status quo in its recruiting efforts. Recently the department started the Student Ambassador’s Program in an effort to actively find students interested in working for the government. Previously, Energy Department officials traveled to college campuses and met with interested students over the course of one day. The process is changing however as the Department of Energy will hire more than 800 new employees in engineering over the next two years.

Interested students will now learn about the Energy department through their own peers over an entire year. Student interns that work in the Department are designated as student ambassadors when they return to school. The ambassadors receive a stipend to educate students and promote the department goals. Ambassadors work with college organizations to manage presentations and organize green events.  The program actively seeks future employees in the Department of Energy and provides information on energy and environmental conservation.

At the University of Central Florida, campus green organization I.D.E.A.S. is working with the Department of Energy to promote the Student Ambassador Program. The group recently made a presentation on the program during its first trip to the Southeast Student Renewable Energy Conference. The group hopes to provide opportunities for students to get involved and promote energy awareness on campus. For more information on the U.S. Department of Energy view the webpage.
