About Westar Energy Internship Program

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.

Internships provide:

  • Professional growth and experience
  • Competitive wages
  • Housing or mileage allowance
  • Free parking
  • Networking opportunities with other interns and Westar professionals
