Interning with SCPPA and it's Members

An internship with SCPPA or one of its members is great way to gain real world experience for your concentration of study! You can apply what you have learned in school, build skills and gain valuable work experience while networking within your field. Internships are also a great opportunity for determining if you are on the right career path. 
SCPPA and its members are interested in a variety of majors and areas of concentration, as the members' needs are always evolving. Within a utility, jobs range from engineering to accounting to marketing to public relations and beyond. Take the first step toward a bright future in public power - apply today!

Application Process

Being hired as a SCPPA intern does not guarantee a position in SCPPA's Glendora office. SCPPA collects applications and resumes for the members and distributes them at the members request for an intern. Member utilities are then responsible for selecting candidates from the application pool and conducting interviews.

Terms and Conditions

An internship with SCPPA is designated as a temporary, part-time, "at-will" engagement. The internship cannot exceed an aggregate maximum of 950 hours and final hours will be based on the needs of the member utility and the intern's availability. SCPPA may offer monetary compensation to candidates which will be based on the applicant's qualifications. Hired interns are not eligible for employment benefits. SCPPA abides to the newly adopted California Sick Leave law that requires part time employees the ability to earn paid sick leave after a probationary period.
