REU Finder Speaker Series Presents Ken Forward of PG&E

On February 3rd we launched our spring speakers series kicking our first workshop workshop led by Ken Forward, Co-founder of PG&E’s Strategic Allies Leading Transparency Task Force (SALT) and President of the PG&E National Society of Black Engineers Network.  Ken’s career with PG&E began over twenty years ago beginning with an internship at PG&E’s Diablo Canyon Power Plant. Today he manages PG&E’s Employee Resource Groups (ERG) and Employee Network Groups (ENG).  


In his talk we learned about Ken’s career path as well as opportunities at PG&E.

Couldn’t make the talk?  Don’t worry we recorded the video so that you can watch Ken’s presentation on our REUFInder YouTube Channel and we’ve shared the slides presented at today’s talk .

Some fun Facts we learned from today’s presentation:   

1)  Apply early to summer internships. Although internships might be for summer the recruitment starts in fall. How do you apply?  Visit PG&E’s careers page and set up a Talent Profile and upload a copy of your resume.  Set up job alerts for internship so you won’t miss Summer Internship opportunities are available for undergraduates as well as graduate students 

2)  PG&E has not one but two scholarship programs!  

The Employee Resource Group and Engineering Network Group Scholarships support students that have a primary residence in that is a PG&E Customer in California at the time of the application.  Scholarships range from 1,000 to 6,000 each! You can also apply to more than one!    

In addition to the ERG/ENG Scholarships you can also apply to the Better Together STEM Scholarships supporting students studying STEM majors. 
Scholarships open on March 13, 2023.

3) LinkedIn is a great way to make not only connections with people but to also learn about a company’s culture and about opportunities with that company. Follow  PG&E on LinkedIn.  

4) PG&E Offers Rotational Programs.  What’s a Rotational Program? A Rotational Program gives you the opportunity to rotate through various departments for a few months at a time. By doing so you can explore which roles best fit your interests and you can also get a strong sense of not only the company’s operations as a whole but knowledge about the specific industry.  

5) PG&E offers a range of opportunities in a variety of majors.  You might think that PG&E is only looking for Civil, Electrical, or  Mechanical Engineers but they actually hire a lot of majors beyond those three. For instance, did you know that PG &E also hires life sciences majors, computer science majors, business majors, and many others.  As a company focused on the transmission and delivery of energy there are ample opportunities for talented candidates from a variety of backgrounds and educational levels.   

6) PG&E offers tuition reimbursement programs. Employees of PG&E may be eligible for reimbursement for the EIT, and the company has partnerships with a number of colleges in and out of California and out of state.  

8) Vocational Opportunities. In addition to summer internships PG & E has a number of vocational programs. Their PowerPathway program is nationally recognized and has an 85% overall hire rate.

9) PG&E scholarships for HBCU students.  Attend an HBCU?  PG&E’s Better Together STEM Scholarship program offers scholarships to  students pursuing studies at universities in California and HBCUs in the United States.  

10) Graduating High School Seniors, Returning Students, GED Recipients you are excellent candidates for PG&E scholarships and opportunities. If you know any graduating high school seniors encourage them to apply for  PG&E’s Scholarships. If you have siblings or other friends and family who are Graduating High School Seniors, Returning Students, GED Recipients  let them know about the scholarships and opportunities that they are eligible to apply to.
