Safe, reliable electricity is a foundation of our economy, which
is why we're committed to doing what it takes to meet Kansas'
continually changing energy needs. As the largest electric provider
in Kansas, our goal is to become a preferred energy provider,
inside and outside our service territory.
Headquartered in Topeka, Westar Energy employs about 2,400
people and serves nearly 700,000 customers in much of east and
east-central Kansas. Our energy centers generate more than 7,000
megawatts of electricity, and we operate and coordinate 35,000
miles of transmission and distribution lines.
It's never too early to start searching for your dream career.
If you're ready to apply the principles you've been learning at
school in the real world, Westar is the place for you. Hands-on
experience is what our internship programs are all about. Our
programs offer students an opportunity to gain insight and
meaningful experience while also allowing us to identify talented
prospective employees. Many of our interns go on to develop
successful careers at Westar.
As an intern, you'll have real responsibilities, and you'll work
on productive assignments with actual business interactions.
- Professional growth and experience
- Competitive wages
- Housing or mileage allowance
- Free parking
- Networking opportunities with other interns and Westar
We know that you work hard, so we help you play hard while you
are here. We provide a number of intern events throughout the
summer to burn some extra energy, including T-Bones games, Green
Team events, energy center tours, lunch and learns, and more!
