Consolidated Edison of New York boasts a steam system spanning Manhattan—the largest in the world. The company also brings electricity and gas to many of the city’s millions, as well as residents of Westchester. In addition to these areas, Con Ed’s parent company, Consolidated Edison, Inc., supplies power to customers in Orange and Rockland Counties in New York, as well as parts of New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
Consolidated Edison of New York offers three internship and co-op programs to New York City students. The high school weekly co-op program offers Brooklyn Tech students a chance to test their technical skills during the academic year, while the co-op intern program does the same for college students. Con Ed’s summer intern program recruits both high school and college students. It is meant to help recruit candidates for the company’s postgraduate training program, known as GOLD (Growth Opportunities for Leadership Development). Specific work duties and responsibilities for interns vary by department, especially between technical and non-technical positions. An intern working in electric operations will help with engineering and planning, doing tasks like working on and analyzing the company’s network transformer failure mitigation strategy program, which aims to reduce the number of transformer failures. On the other side of the spectrum, finance interns work in the corporate accounting, accounting research and procedures section. They act as associate accountants and help complete research and financial reporting assignments and develop and update accounting procedures, among other tasks.
Open to full-time college students who have at least sophomore status and a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0. Students should be studying accounting, economics, finance, computer science, engineering or environmental science.
