Apply now to ATC’s summer 2021 paid internships

American Transmission Co. is seeking college students for summer 2021 internships in operations training and development, cybersecurity, safety/emergency preparedness, transmission planning and more. Our paid internships help students gain professional experience and prepare for a career in the electric utility industry.

Our student employees can apply classroom knowledge to real-world situations, and experience what it takes to operate the transmission grid that helps to keep the lights on for millions of energy users. We also keep in contact with our interns after graduation and keep them in mind for future open positions.

In summer 2020, ATC welcomed 15 interns remotely due to COVID-19. The interns worked part-time and as in previous years, participated in volunteer activities with United Way, although this year’s volunteer opportunities were virtual. The program included many virtual activities tailored to optimize the interns’ remote working experiences and help them stay connected and engaged. The onboarding program included a work-from-home ergonomics session and virtual substation and operations center tours.

Brandon Dobrowski attends the University of Wisconsin—Platteville where he’s pursuing a degree in electrical engineering with an emphasis in power and controls. He interned last summer in substation services and had great things to say about ATC’s company culture.

“My first impression of ATC was how well this company was run and how amazing the people are that work for ATC,” he said. “Every person I have met with and spoken to are some of the nicest and most welcoming people I have ever engaged with. If I have a question on something, there are multiple people that are more than willing to help me and guide me down the right path.”
