CoolGreenPower seeks a diverse and inclusive set of candidates who care deeply about the environment and aspire to have an impact.
Massachusetts Clean Energy Internship Program
Since 2015, CoolGreenPower has participated in the Massachusetts Clean Energy Internship program hiring more than 30 interns. The program helps provide CoolGreenPower with a talented pool of young professionals, with MassCEC providing stipends for interns during fall, spring and summer sessions.
Our interns receive exceptional experience contributing to high-level projects that they wouldn’t otherwise come anywhere close to at a big company. We organize work into projects that are all critical to the company’s future success and that help our interns to develop a massive breadth of skills. Our interns “wear many hats” and continuously move between concurrent projects according to their own prioritization.
Our interns work alongside CoolGreenPower leaders, technicians, consultants, and each other. CoolGreenPower has a flat organization structure, meaning there no levels of middle management between our interns and our leadership. For those projects that have a customer facing element, our interns are often the primary interface with the customers.
Our interns have direct access to the CoolGreenPower Knowledge Repository. Here we store research, working documents, final deliverables, and other valuable information. Everyone in the company is involved in knowledge management. CoolGreenPower, our customers, and our partners benefit a lot when our people share, innovate, reuse, and collaborate on what they learn.
Most work by interns is remote, rather than at the CoolGreenPower headquarters location in Concord, Mass. We provide you an Office 365 account and use online collaboration tools such as Microsoft Teams and Sharepoint to regularly stay in touch. We also schedule periodic face-to-face meetings once every 2-3 weeks. If travel is required, it is reimbursed. We encourage you to use public transportation and or ride share services. If you have your own vehicle, we reimburse for mileage.
Some interns have returned to intern again with CoolGreenPower during a subsequent semester. For these interns, we adjust the role and its responsibilities to create opportunities for building new skills. A second internship benefits both the student and CoolGreenPower as this minimizes the learning curve and enables the student to have an immediate impact. Due to the requirements of the Massachusetts Clean Energy Internship program, there must be at least one semester between internships.
Our interns do meaningful work. We want our interns to wake up every day looking forward to working at CoolGreenPower and making a difference. Following the program, our interns leverage their new skills, exposure to emerging technologies, peer network, and enhanced resume to drive them towards future success. On a regular basis, our interns ask us to be a reference to future employers, and we are happy to do this.
