“As an intern, I was able to use what I learned in my classes
and apply it to my work. It was great to see the genuine
interest that my team at Xcel Energy had in helping me grow in
my role and in my career - I met a number of people through
informational interviews who were happy to share their
experiences, knowledge and career advice.
Today, I'm with a different team but there is the same level of support and interest to see me grow in my career. ”
