The Prairie State Generating Company (PSGC) is pleased to announce the arrival of its 2018 intern class. This summer, 18 interns have joined the Prairie State staff to work throughout different departments at the mine, power plant, and corporate office.
Prairie State believes that an internship should be more than just a summer job. The PSGC internship program provides students with a unique professional experience that helps to prepare them for the future, while applying classroom knowledge in a real-world setting.
PSGC’s interns have come from many different towns, states, and even countries. They all chose PSGC for various reasons; but the value placed on safety and the hands-on experience are the resounding reasons why these interns chose to spend their summers at Prairie State.
“I appreciate that the number one value at Prairie State is safety and that the other employees here give us so many opportunities to learn,” said mine engineering intern Mooketsi Selelo.
The intern class will conclude the program with a presentation showcasing their summer projects to Prairie State’s leadership team. To read more about Prairie State’s diverse class of interns, visit https://prairiestateenergycampus.com/category/interns/.
