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.
