Three students from Mesalands Community College's wind energy technology program were selected to participate in the wind technician internship program sponsored by Granite Services International.
According to Mesalands, the students will be paid during their summer internship while applying their trade. If the students complete the internship program – and obtain a degree while maintaining their grade point average (GPA) – they will be guaranteed full-time employment with Granite.
An affiliate of General Electric, Granite says that students interested in the summer Wind Technician Internship Program must be pursuing a two-year wind/renewable technology degree from a college that participates in its program. Participants must also submit a cover letter, resume, letter describing why they are applying for the internship, letter of recommendation and college transcripts demonstrating a minimum 2.8 GPA.
