• Atlantic City Electric’s Intern Program Helping to Prepare Workforce of the Future

    Jul 29, 2016

    MAYS LANDING, N.J. (July 29, 2016) – More than a dozen undergraduate and graduate students have the opportunity this summer to take part in internship programs in various departments at Atlantic City Electric (ACE). The paid internships require a 40 hour work week from June to August. Students gain hands on experience working in the office or performing assignments in the field. 

    “We encourage students to inquire about available internships with our company to learn more about the electric utility business and the career opportunities available in the energy industry,” said Vince Maione, Atlantic City Electric region president.

    Students can learn from utility experts in a variety of areas within the company including Substation Engineering, Drafting, Electric Distribution, Resource Management, Transmission and Civil Engineering and Operations. Atlantic City Electric’s internship program provides students with a firsthand look at the work the company does and insight into future employment opportunities. Atlantic City Electric personnel, in turn, get to know the talented young people who may one day join the company.

    The program also supports diversity and inclusion by providing internship opportunities to many female and minority students.

    “I would enjoy a career in the utility industry and working for Atlantic City Electric. The people here are very supportive and the work is engaging,” said second-year intern Ray Linden, who is working as an intern in the company’s Electric Distribution Reliability Department. “I believe the work I am doing here is very meaningful and I appreciate the opportunity to not only work in the office, but also out in the field.    

    Second-year Transmission Engineering intern Nicholas Pellegrino, of Avalon, and a senior at George Mason University, says he is appreciative of the responsibility given to him. “Compared to my internship last year, I have a lot more responsibility this year and it’s been a great learning experience whether performing work in the field with the engineers or doing research for special projects,” he said.
