Are you a college student interested in exploring a career in the energy industry?

If you’re looking for an exciting internship that will give you hands-on experience in your field of study at a leading Fortune 500 company, Xcel Energy may have the opportunity for you. With more than half of our workforce eligible to retire over the next decade, we are always looking for bright new talent.


Our summer internship program is a structured program that begins with kick off events at our headquarter locations in Minnesota, Texas and Colorado. As a summer intern, you will work on challenging projects and have the opportunity to visit other Xcel Energy facilities in your area. You will have weekly calls with your assigned mentor, and submit monthly reports to document your projects and enhance your resume. All summer interns prepare a final presentation on their experience for their peers and compete for awards.

Most of our internships are full-time summer positions, but we also offer some part-time year-round co-op internships that can be set up to accommodate your class schedule. All internships are paid and include some level of benefits, such as a 401(k) and paid time off, and many of them can result in full-time jobs down the road, based on performance. We do require that our interns be enrolled in a full-time bachelor or master’s program and be actively taking classes. If your school requires that internships earn academic credit, we can work with them to facilitate that.

Although most of our internships have a specific focus, our interns often get broader exposure to Xcel Energy’s business and insight into different areas of the company. Internships are available across our eight-state service territory; scroll down to see what’s available near you.

Xcel Energy is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
