Intern/cooperative associates at PPL work alongside industry professionals in a program designed to give students practical work experience and increase their professional abilities and skills in their field of study. Full-time and part-time competitively paid opportunities are available throughout the year.
The intern/co-op program helps students determine career interests and gain exposure to a corporate environment while gaining practical skills and experience to supplement their work in the classroom.
Intern/co-op opportunities are available for various fields of study. PPL has arranged with local colleges to provide affordable housing options for summer interns/co-ops, both on-campus and off-campus.
LG&E and KU also offer co-op/internship programs in Kentucky during the summer, as well as the fall and spring semesters. Paid internships are open to students who are currently enrolled in an accredited college or university.
In addition to real-world experience and competitive pay, co-ops and interns can attend educational and networking events and receive informal mentoring and job shadowing opportunities. Qualifying students may be eligible for a housing stipend or course fee reimbursement. Find more about the program here:
